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.
Admission to the major is by competitive application at the end of the freshman year. Admission to the minor is by submission of an acceptable course of study by the end of drop/add, around October 3 of their junior year.
Freshmen or transfer students who are considering applying for this major are advised to take one or more foundational courses appropriate for the International Studies Program to build their academic background and demonstrate their academic skills in topics related to the major.
Students are encouraged to seek appropriate internships and to explore post-graduate options.
ISP periodically publishes student evaluations of study abroad programs.
Students who graduate from the International Studies Program often continue their education.
IS students have worked for the military, the state department, nonprofits, NGOs, multi-national corporations, and in many other fields. If you click on the word “careers”, you will have access to a vast alumni network.
A useful starting point for research on international topics is the wealth of internet sites that provide information and data related to international issues.
