Get ready for the world stage

The world needs people who understand vital global issues and appreciate cultural differences — people like you.

You’ll get an individualized educational experience tailored to you and your career goals. Focus on a topic that interests you — comparative cultural studies, diplomacy or trade and development. Then handpick courses from related majors like art, economics, English, history, political science, religious studies, and sociology and anthropology.

The world is your classroom. You’ll study in another culture for at least two weeks through our award-winning Global Opportunities program. Land an internship in the U.S. or abroad. Apply for a Fulbright to continue your studies abroad — we have a proven track record of international studies students landing Fulbright awards.

Prepare for any career anywhere

Work for Doctors Without Borders or the Department of State. Join the Peace Corps. Preserve heritage in a French museum. Write about global issues for a major magazine. Or teach abroad. Our goal is to prepare you for whatever career you seek — in whatever country you want.

Our graduates attend prestigious graduate schools and have careers in international education, service, international organizations, government jobs and businesses around the world.
