Requirements for the liberal arts majors in international studies, B.A. programs


The international studies majors consist of a minimum of 40 credits, of which 20 credits must be taken in the primary area (East Asian studies, Latin American studies); 12 credits in a complementary area of study; and 8 credits at the 300-400 level in an appropriate language. Language courses at the 100 and 200 level do not count toward the total number of credits for the major in either the primary or secondary area.  The complementary area of study ordinarily consists of the appropriate introductory international studies course and two additional courses in the area, which may be either international studies courses or departmental courses.

Duplication of course credit in the primary and complementary areas is not permitted. However, majors may apply their courses in international studies to their general education requirements.
