Mission Statement

The mission of the Boston College International Studies Program is to offer an undergraduate interdisciplinary curriculum to students interested in international aspects of the arts and sciences that equips them with knowledge and skills for meeting economic, ethical, political, and social challenges in the global environment of the twenty-first century. The goals of the Program are, first, to provide students with the opportunity to combine insights from different academic disciplines so as to gain a broad understanding of international affairs and, second, to engender conversations about international issues more generally among students, faculty, and other members of the Boston College community.
