The three International Studies elective courses should be chosen in consultation with the student’s advisor and should be connected to one another by some rationale.
As part of the international studies major, students are strongly advised to undertake an internship in the international field (government, the private sector, international organizations, institutions or societies), to study abroad for a summer or semester, or to work on a project related to the international field.
