Areas of Concentration

All students majoring in International Studies must choose one of the following four areas of concentration:

 


Culture and Communication

 

Culture and Communication is the broadest of the four concentrations and gives students a framework for studying the ways that cultural and historical dynamics shape social, political, and economic relations across the globe. Many students with a concentration in Culture and Communication go on to pursue careers in fields such as education, human rights, journalism, law, and international NGOs.

 


Development

 

Students with a concentration in Development learn how the economic possibilities of people around the world today have emerged out of centuries of global political and economic relations. Many students with a concentration in Development go on to pursue careers in fields such as economic policy and international NGOs.



Comparative Public Policy

 

The concentration in Comparative Public Policy helps students develop the skills needed to formulate and advocate policies on key international issues. Students with this concentration frequently pursue careers in think tanks, non-profit organizations, foreign policy, and international governance.

 


International Relations

 

Students in International Relations focus on the interactions between nation-states and within international political institutions such as the United Nations. This concentration gives students the background to pursue careers in international governance and diplomacy.

Concentration electives

 

Students choose five advanced (20000-level or higher) classes that contribute to their concentration. The five classes must be drawn from at least three different disciplines (in other words, they must have course numbers beginning with at least three different departmental or program prefixes, such as ANTH, ECON, INTL, PSC, SOC, etc.). The International Studies Program makes available a master list of all courses offered across different departments that are approved to contribute to each concentration (see above, on this page). Students should check CUNYFirst to see what is being offered each semester from this masterlist.

 

Senior Seminar/Essay

All students majoring in International Studies must take either Senior Seminar (INTL 32100) or register to write a Senior Essay (INTL 32200).***

 

Senior Seminar (INTL 32100)

Senior Seminar is a regular class in which you and your classmates will undertake a semester-long research project structured and guided by your instructor. The class is a capstone experience for International Studies majors and gives you the opportunity to draw on all of your college learning--theory, methods, regional and topical courses, and other experiences such as study abroad or internships.

To register for Senior Seminar, you need to be granted permission on CUNYfirst by emailing Dr. Muir (  smuir@ccny.cuny.edu  ) with your EMPLID.

 

 

Senior Essay (INTL 32200)

Senior Essay (often called Senior Thesis) is structured as an independent study class in which you design and execute a semester-long research project on a subject matter of your choosing. The project culminates in an essay, usually 35-50 pages in length.

To register for Senior Essay, you must first find a faculty member here at CCNY who is has expertise in your chosen subject matter and who agrees to serve as your mentor. Once you have secured a faculty mentor, the two of you should decide together how you will frame your research project, the methods appropriate to doing that research, a schedule of tasks for the semester, and the guidelines for the final essay. You then submit that information (in the format below) to Dr. Muir (  smuir@ccny.cuny.edu  ). If Dr. Muir approves your plan, then you and your mentor will sign a special form that will be submitted, along with the plan, to the Registrar.

 

 

The plan for your senior essay must be in the following format, typed in Microsoft Word and emailed to Dr. Muir (  smuir@ccny.cuny.edu  )
