300.35 International Studies Major

Students who complete a Major in International Studies will have developed knowledge and critical thinking about international issues in Social Science. This Major prepares students for university studies in any Social Science discipline but is especially designed for students interested in pursuing university studies in International Development, Humanitarian Law or Human Rights or students who would like eventually to work in settings such as the United Nations or other international profit and non-profit organizations. A student who graduates with a Major in International Studies will have a better understanding and appreciation for how cultures, religions and economies intersect and interact, how racist, sexist and ethnocentric prejudices are constructed, and how humanity adapts to and also threatens the many varied but connected and shared physical environments around the world. There is also the possibility for students to take part in a study trip after their third semester. This trip is usually in a Central American Country.
