International Studies Program

Global & International Studies Program 

The world is becoming an ever smaller place in which to live, and the interdependence of our political, cultural and economic systems is growing by the day. Locally, the state of Indiana participates actively in the global economy. In 2005, Indiana was the 11th largest exporting state with record exports that year of $21.5 billion dollars. To help students understand the international system, and to prepare them for a career in an increasingly globalized world, the School of Liberal Arts offers an interdisciplinary major and minor in International Studies.

Students will learn another language, specialize in a given region of the world, study abroad for the major, focus on cultural, historical, political, and economic aspects of the international system, and develop a broad awareness of the major global forces at work in the 21st century world. They will be better equipped to understand and pursue a career or graduate study in an interdependent world.
