International Studies, BA
The Bachelor of Arts degree program in international studies consists of three parts: three years of study of one foreign language; the major core courses, which include introductory work in art history, economics, geography, history, political science, religion and women’s studies; and work in a specialized track.
The specialized tracks in the international studies major provide six options: international diplomacy and peace studies, area studies, comparative cultures, international economics, global gender studies, and research/intelligence analysis.
- The international diplomacy and peace studies track includes courses in political science, communication, and history.
- The area studies track allows students to focus on a global region (e.g., Africa or Latin America) and includes classes in anthropology, history, humanities, and political science.
- The comparative cultures track includes courses from anthropology, classics, English, history, humanities, philosophy, and religion.
- The international economics track focuses on global economic concerns, with supporting course work in history, political science, and sociology.
- The global gender studies track incorporates a gender-analysis approach to diplomacy, area studies, comparative cultures, and international economics.
- The research/intelligence track combines course work in research methods, ethics, and a variety of disciplines to assist those interested in international affairs to work in data analysis.
