International Studies


What Can I Do With A Major In International Studies?

The International Studies program provides students with the tools to follow and assess current political and economic events and changes, while providing an historical and cultural background, essential to understanding such events. As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, an appreciation of different cultures, as well as political and economic trends, is essential for graduates to achieve professional and personal success. Employers are looking for graduates with strong analytical skills who are able to understand and evaluate the impact of political, economic, and cultural events. Government agencies, international organizations, private corporations, non-profit groups, and professional and trade organizations desire new employees who are capable of working with a global perspective.
