Requirements for Major » Regional Concentrations

International Studies majors develop a depth of knowledge about a regional interest by taking relevant coursework and spending time abroad. The regional focus helps students put what they learn in their International Studies courses into the context of a particular culture.
A region can be defined:

  • geographically
  • linguistically (example: the French-speaking world)
  • religiously (example: the Islamic world)
  • ethnically (example: the African diaspora outside the United States)

Students should consult with their academic advisor to discuss how to fit in their regional interests.
