Knowledge of how business, politics and science are interwoven across political and cultural boundaries is a marketable and increasingly sought-after skill in many fields, both at home and abroad. The International Studies helps students to acquire the tools necessary to understand and analyze the problems that confront our complex world.
Students' experiences are rounded out through international excursions and internships, as well as summers, semesters or academic years spent in faculty-led study abroad programs. The International Studies department also brings the world to our students with on-campus lectures from ambassadors from around the globe and trips to the United Nations.
