Program Overview header

Bachelor of Arts in International Studies, International Education Concentration

International studies is a multidisciplinary major designed to meet the needs of students seeking the broadly based international perspective required for successful careers in education, government, international business, law, national and homeland security, humanitarian relief, and social entrepreneurship. The curriculum includes a core of required courses, a concentration, a foreign language requirement, an international and/or cross-cultural experiential component, and a senior capstone seminar. The experiential component may be satisfied through study abroad, internship, language immersion, service, or work experience.

Educators with the skills necessary to navigate multicultural environments have opportunities to train business managers facing overseas assignments as well as to advise international students at U.S. colleges and universities and to prepare undergraduates for international study. Students in this concentration who complete an additional one credit practicum will also earn UD’s TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Certificate, offering an advantage to those seeking positions teaching English in schools abroad.

Please note: This certificate alone does not qualify an individual for a teaching license from the State of Ohio Department of Education.
