A Bachelor of Arts degree major in International Studies is administered through the Department of Political Science. The International Studies major consists of an integrated group of courses reflecting international aspects of various disciplines and requires intermediate level competency in a modern language. It is designed to provide the student with a broad base of understanding of the interrelationship of the world community, while at the same time providing the opportunity to specialize in an area of interest. An International Studies minor is also offered. See the listing under International Studies for further details.
With the growing involvement of the United States in international business and the increasingly multicultural character of American society itself, the importance of foreign languages in nearly every kind of occupation is considerable. The majors in foreign languages and literatures, therefore, may lead to teaching careers and represent direct, practical assets in other fields such as business, industry and commerce, civil service, law, library science, media, science, health services, social work, travel, and tourism.
