Prospective International Studies majors should complete the college preparatory curriculum in high school.

Students should take:

  • at least two years of a foreign language
  • courses in government, economics, world history, and geography
  • be familiar with international current events

International Studies students usually have an interest in intercultural understanding and seek opportunities to learn about different people and places in hopes of decreasing the boundaries of culture and location.

Study Abroad

Students are required to study abroad. An alternative international engagement activity reserved for those majors with a demonstrated inability to study abroad is available. Study in approved study abroad programs can be applied to fulfillment of other requirements in the major. Students should speak with an International Studies faculty advisor for more details. See the following link for more information about study abroad: http://www.ius.edu/intprograms/studyabroad.php
