International Studies

Anchored in political science and history, a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies will provide you with deep insights into the political and historical forces that have shaped the countries and regions you’ll study. You’ll broaden your global perspectives by studying a foreign language and taking part in experiential learning opportunities, such as an internship or study-abroad program.

Upon successful completion of the international studies program, you’ll be well equipped to further your education at graduate school, as well as pursue a career in international business, government, law, media, education or nonprofit organizations. You might pursue a career as a cultural specialist, director of international programs, foreign correspondent, government policy adviser, journalist, management consultant or political scientist.
