With a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies, students develop a general interdisciplinary understanding of being a citizen in a global society. Students also learn about the language and culture of one geographic area of the world, as well as an understanding of the political climate, economics, and history of that region. This major provides students with the necessary preparation to live and work in a globally connected world, whether in the business arena, government agencies, or for non-profit organizations.
