Bachelor of Arts in International Studies - Global Migration and Economic Development 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.
Students interested in the social justice implications of globalization will find that the global migration and economic development concentration offers them opportunities to analyze shifts in legal migration, unauthorized immigration and forced population movement as well as policies and strategies for improving peoples' health, education, and standard of living, especially in the Global South.
