International Studies Program Overview

The Department of Government, Legal Studies, and Philosophy coordinates interdisciplinary major and minor programs in International Studies en route to a Bachelor's degree.  These programs offer students a strong foundation in the social sciences in preparation for a wide range of exciting career paths. Students develop a solid grounding in relevant history, political science, sociology, geography, philosophy, and foreign language coursework. The degree program also allows students to efficiently incorporate a minor of their choice into their undergraduate studies, engage in study abroad, and focus on a geographic region or global issue, so that students are able to better prepare themselves to pursue their vocational goals.

This degree also helps students develop their oral and written communication skills, enhance their ability to think critically and creatively about real world challenges and issues, broaden their understanding of cultural diversity, and provides them with a unique experience of the world. The program of study helps give students the intellectual tools, research skills and experiences to seek out employment in business, government, nonprofits, social services, consulting firms, or education.
