California State University, Stanislaus
Social Sciences B.A. Concentration in International Studies
The Bachelor of Arts, Social Sciences is an interdepartmental degree program consisting of courses in the following disciplines: anthropology, communication studies, criminal justice, economics, ethnic studies, geography, history, political science, psychology, and sociology. Students select courses from any three of the above disciplines. The program offers a wide variety of courses dealing with human interaction in past and present society and acquaints students with con-temporary social problems, their causes, and their potential solutions.
Additionally, a course in the methods of scientific investigation in the social sciences provides students with valuable analytical skills.
The International Studies program provides a framework of study for students interested in the interrelations of nations and peoples. Because these interrelations are complex and operate at different levels (economic, political, military, cultural, etc.), a student must be selective regarding the areas to be investigated. Thus the focus of a student`s coursework in this concentration may be on a particular area (Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, etc.), or on international problems (economic, political, diplomatic, etc.), on international organizations and their functions, or aspects of intercultural communications, etc.
