    International Studies

    The international studies program promotes understanding of the international community. The program encourages a substantial distribution of foreign and international course work under the direct, personal guidance of an interdisciplinary faculty committee. Students must enroll in another major before taking international studies as a secondary major.

    Students who complete the secondary major in international studies are expected to include the following within their areas of knowledge or competency: speaking capability in a foreign language; basic geographic knowledge of the world; ability to understand and analyze cultures other than their own; some understanding of developmental processes; some understanding of international relations and processes of interaction; and some integration of their program of study into a meaningful and coherent whole.

    Students must complete the equivalent of four semesters of a modern foreign language. They must also complete 24 hours of course work, distributed as follows:

    Geographic knowledge
    University General Education courseGEOG 100 World Regional Geography

    Cultural understanding
    ANTH 200,
      201, or University General Education course204 Introduction to Cultural Anthropology

    International relations
    At least one course marked I in the approved course list.

    Program integration
    DAS 425 Senior Research in International Studies
    or approved alternative.

    During the senior year, the student will write a research paper or complete a project on an international topic. The research may be an honors thesis or design project in one of the participating colleges, or it may involve independent study. Students may enroll in DAS 425 or in an approved alternative course. In all cases, the student must have the permission of a faculty member to supervise and evaluate the work. All students enrolled in Senior Research in International Studies must have their topics approved by the director of the secondary major in international studies.

    The remaining 12 hours may be taken from the approved course listing. No more than 6 hours (of the 24) may be applied from a single discipline, and no more than 6 hours may be counted toward both a secondary major in an area studies program and in international studies. Students are encouraged to take courses in more than one college, and are required to consult with the international studies director on the design and coherence of their international studies program.

    Courses listed below are representative of those for which students may receive credit in international studies. Alternative courses may be approved by petition to the program director. New program options are being planned. Note that often appropriate courses are offered under categories such as ``topics,'' ``special studies,'' ``problems,'' or ``seminar.'' For the current list of approved courses and new program developments, call or write the director, or view the list at the international and area studies website.
