International Studies

International studies is a multidisciplinary field that arms you with a deeper understanding of how governments, law, politics, business, civil society, culture, science, and the environment relate on the international stage. Throughout your degree, you will study the relations between countries, regions, international organizations, and transnational networks.

Interested in international development? You can also explore disparities between countries and regions. This program will teach you the methods that non-governmental and international organizations use to find solutions to international problems.
