The International Studies major consists of an integrated group of courses reflecting international aspects of various disciplines. It is designed to provide the student with a broad base of understanding of the interrelationship of the world community, while at the same time providing the opportunity to specialize in an area of interest. A minor in International Studies is also offered.
The International Studies major consists of a lower division requirement of twelve (12) units in Economics and Geography/Environmental Studies and, optionally, Anthropology, plus a foreign language requirement. The upper division requirements include a methods course, a twentieth century History course, and three INTS courses (an introductory upper division course, a senior seminar, and an international field experience). The student will complete the major with sixteen (16) units of international coursework with a particular emphasis and twelve (12) units selected from a list of electives.
