The Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies is both challenging and rewarding.  It is comprised of five main components: a core of classes comprising general global competency taken by all IS majors, and four additional components shaped around an individual student’s interests and career goals. 

These include issue emphasis training (in international relations, business and economics, or global resources and development), regional emphasis coursework (Africa, Asia, Europe, or Latin America) advanced language training (six credits at the upper division level),  an abroad experience in a country in the student’s regional emphasis where their language is spoken.  This curriculum, with its additional emphasis on writing and speaking techniques used commonly in the international arena, prepares students for a wide range of careers in government, the nonprofit sector, business, and other realms.
