International Studies (A&S)

Worley (Director)

The Related Fields Concentration in International Studies, housed in the Languages Department, is designed to offer students an opportunity to gain global perspectives, to pursue greater understanding of our interconnected world, and to prepare to apply those insights to a variety of professions. The program is intended for students who have an interest in an international area or concentration that is currently not offered through existing departments. The subject matter is vast and the professional and personal opportunities for utilizing it are rich and varied. Therefore, the program is designed to provide considerable latitude in matching the specific content of individual programs to the needs and goals of students. Students will be required to work closely with their academic advisers to plan the best possible program within the possibilities provided by the Related Fields Concentration.
