International Studies

The international studies major is distinguished by its insistence on study and residency in at least one non-U.S. culture. A flexible curriculum meets a wide range of academic interests and career goals. The program combines academic theory and course work with practice-based research and fieldwork. This is supported by the intellectual and creative challenge of a senior thesis. This falls under the global politics and societies (GPS) department which includes four separate major programs of study in sociology, religious studies, political science, and international studies and one minor program of study in social justice.
