International Studies is an interdisciplinary major that seeks to help students attain a well-rounded understanding of global developments and trends and to prepare them to succeed in the globalized world of the 21st-century. Globalization and Sustainability is a formal concentration in the program.

In addition to core courses in international politics, history, and economics, students study a foreign language and choose an area of concentration in which they take a cluster of courses in one of three areas: a country or region of their choice, globalization and sustainability, or security studies. A distinguishing aspect of the major is the comprehensive oral examination, which students take in the last semester of the senior year.
