International Studies

International Studies is an interdisciplinary major that expose students to a broad range of international issues through course offerings from the arts, humanities and social sciences.

It also offers students the opportunity for in-depth study of a geographical area of the world through an area emphasis, language studies and study abroad program. In addition to language, history and literature courses, students will study macroeconomics, world politics, international environmental policy, world religions, art and music. All majors must spend a minimum of one semester, or the academic equivalent, on a study abroad program approved by the department director. A capstone experience in the form of an independent study, internship, or practicum is required of all majors.

The International Studies major is associated with the Department of Modern Languages and the Office of Global Education (http://www.washjeff.edu/global-education). The major requires a minimum of 11 courses representing at least four different departments. Additional information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
