Advising

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.

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 Joyce, or with the Director and Associate Director of the Program, Professor Robert Murphy and Professor Hiroshi Nakazato, respectively.

Additional, faculty from many disciplines are associated with the International Studies Program and are a good source of advice for students.
