Regional Areas of Concentration


All students majoring in international studies must complete 15 hours in a primary area of concentration, and six hours in a secondary area of concentration. At least nine hours in the primary concentration must be taken at the 3000 level or above. At least three hours in the secondary concentration must be taken at the 3000 level or above.

Areas of concentration in International Studies are classified as either regional or global. The regional areas of concentration are Africa, Middle East, Asia, Europe, Latin America, or Russian and Central Asia- SUSPENDED. The global areas of concentration are Global Studies, Global Diplomacy, Environment and Development, or Global Cultures. Students must select one regional and one global area of concentration. Thus if a regional area of concentration is chosen as the primary area of concentration, then the secondary area of concentration must be a global area, and vice versa. Courses in the primary concentration must be taken in at least two different departments.

Students must meet language competency standards in a language appropriate to their regional area of concentration. (See below.)

Note: The following course listings are not exhaustive. Special topics classes are not included, but, if relevant, may be counted towards a concentration by arrangement with the Associate Director. As many of the listed courses are offered either infrequently or in alternate years, students are advised that they should check availability with departments and plan their course work schedule well in advance.

Consult “Degree Requirements of the College ” in this section of the catalog for specific instructions regarding approved electives and foreign language requirements.

Consult “General Education ” section of the catalog for the general education requirements.

Students must complete 15 hours for a primary area of concentration or six hours for the secondary area of concentration in one of the following regional areas.
