The Undergraduate International Studies Program is a multidisciplinary program that offers eleven majors and twelve minors, some specializing in specific regions of the world and some in topics of concern to the global community. The program was created in 1943 with a view to introducing students to both the diversity of the world around them and America’s place in it. This vision continues to inform the program in today’s more complex and globalized world.

International Studies is designed to produce informed leaders and practitioners on world issues; to promote proficiency in a foreign language; and to endow students with advanced writing, critical-thinking and public-speaking skills. The program provides a rigorous liberal arts education while arming students with the professional, technical and cross-cultural skills needed to prosper at home and abroad.
