Students interested in world affairs may take advantage of several interdisciplinary opportunities. The College of Arts and Sciences offers two secondary majors, international studies and Latin American studies, to undergraduates.

In addition to a variety of courses that focus directly on international topics, students have the opportunity to work with faulty who have considerable expertise through their own international research and experience. Guest lecturers, visiting scholars, special seminars and conferences provide opportunities for students and faculty to learn of new developments in the international arena and to appreciate the global dimension of activities in our state and nation. Many colleges offer special programs, including group study abroad opportunities. Students may study a variety of foreign languages in support of international studies or to qualify for research and internship opportunities.
