PROFESSOR JEANNETTE D. BRAGGER, in charge
This interdiscinplinary major is intended to provide, for undergraduate students in another major, the opportunity for an integrated course of international study leading to a second baccalaureate major. This major is available only as a multiple, simultaneous, or sequential major. The program includes 12 credits of foreign language study beyond the 12th-credit level or equivalent proficiency, and education abroad or equivalent work-internship experience, related advanced course work, and a senior course or project in International Studies. The language, international experience, and advanced study should be integrated around a thematic or geographical focus.
The degree (e.g., B.A., B.S., B.F.A., B.B.A., etc.) will normally match that of the student's first major.
Students in baccalaureate degree programs other than those leading to the B.A. who desire a B.A. degree in International Studies will receive simultaneous degrees and have to fulfill all requirements for simultaneous degrees and for the B.A. degree as indicated under "Simultaneous and Multi-Major Degree Programs" in the GENERAL INFORMATION section of this bulletin and under "Baccalaureate Degree Requirements" at the beginning of this college section.
