International Studies Major
International Studies Minor
The core courses for the international studies major or minor are designed to be
taken in sequence, and students majoring in international studies are expected to
take the senior seminar in their senior year. Since planning for individual major
programs will require the coordinated efforts of various departments, early identification
of majors is essential.
Students are advised to declare their intention to major no later than the sophomore
year, and they must obtain approval from the chair for selection of courses in order
to ensure coherence. With the permission of the International Studies Council, students
may substitute appropriate honors courses, internships, independent study, or courses
taken as part of an overseas academic experience for courses on the major of for
courses of related work.
No more than two courses used to satisfy the collegiate requirements may be counted
on the major.
