Sample Course of Study

Because the International Studies Program offers students an especially flexible and interdisciplinary major, students should work closely with advisors to develop a course of study.

Below is a sample course of study that would allow a student to complete the general education ("Pathways") requirements as well as the requirements for a major in International Studeis within four years (eight semesters, with 15 credits per semester).***
