International Studies Concentration
The arena of international affairs is the focus of some of the most significant actions
of humankind. Whether those of the trader, the diplomat, or the warrior, these actions
can bring poverty, prosperity, peace, war, death, humiliation, or glory to individuals
and peoples. All take place in an environment lacking the authoritative rules and
restraints often found within states. The International Studies Concentration provides
an opportunity for the student to focus his studies on the fascinating and vital aspect
of human life.
The concentration is designed particularly for those students majoring in politics,
economics, history, or modern language. It may also be taken by students majoring
in other disciplines at the University. It provides an excellent foundation for those
thinking of careers in the foreign service, international organizations, or international
business. It aims above all at leading the student to reflect on the unique nature
of the international environment in its political, economic, and historical aspects.
