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, and Latin America. 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.
