    Majors & Minors

    The International Studies major offers four possible emphases. They are "Foreign Language and Area Studies", "Business", "Public Diplomacy", and "International Economics." Required courses make up 21 credits, the emphases make up 33 credits, for a total of 54 credits.

    There is no language requirement for the International Studies minor, although foreign language courses strongly enhance the value of the minor. This minor is more general than the Latin American Studies or Asian Studies minors. Those minors are recommended for students who want all of their courses in the minor to be region-specific.

    Below you will find more information about the majors, minor, and approved courses.
