international studies program
The interdisciplinary character of the major and minor in International Studies requires that students carefully coordinate their course of study across many academic departments. Early planning is essential to a successful program, as schedules can conflict and not all courses are offered in every year.
Faculty and Staff Advisors
Students majoring in International Studies will be assigned an advisor with expertise in their area of concentration (economics, political science, or humanities). Students minoring in International Studies may consult with the Program Advisor, Ms. Patricia McLaughlin, or with the Director and Acting Associate Director of the Program, Prof. Robert Murphy and Prof. Hiroshi Nakazato, respectively.
Additionally, faculty from many disciplines are associated with the International Studies program and are a good source of advice for students.
