The International Studies Major

Admission is by competitive application at the end of freshman year. Approximately 100 students will be accepted into the major. Criteria for admission include academic achievement (overall GPA, rigor of the academic program, and other noteworthy aspects of academic performance), demonstrated personal and intellectual commitment to the field, quality of the student's personal statement, and foreign language proficiency (where applicable to the proposed course of study).

The International Studies Minor

Admission is by submission of an acceptable course of study within the guidelines of the minor. Students wishing to declare a minor must do so by the beginning of the first semester of their Junior year, no later than the last day of drop, on or about October 1.

The Carroll School of Management offers its own International Studies minor for CSOM students; contact Josephine Xiong in Fulton 360 for further details.
