International StudiesThe international studies program uses a broad multidisciplinary curriculum that allows students to study a region of the world or a global issue from multiple perspectives. This program draws on courses from anthropology, economics, foreign language, geography, history, political science, and sociology. The curriculum provides a strong substantive background in world affairs along with analytic and language skills to prepare students who wish to pursue additional study and careers in government, business, law, or education.
The Associate of Arts degree in international studies is designed to facilitate transfer of coursework to one of the many four-year programs in the region. A minimum of 64 hours is required for an Associate of Arts degree.
