The arena of international affairs is the focus of some of the most significant actions of mankind. Whether those of the trader, the diplomat, or the warrior, these actions can bring poverty, prosperity, peace, war, death, humiliation, or glory to individuals and peoples. All this takes place in an environment lacking the authoritative rules and restraints often found within states. The International Studies Concentration provides an opportunity for the student to focus his studies on this fascinating and vital aspect of human life.
This concentration is designed particularly for those students majoring in politics, economics, history, or modern languages. It may also be taken by students majoring in other disciplines at the University. It provides an excellent foundation for those thinking of careers in the foreign service, international organizations, or international business, and aims above all at leading the student to reflect about the unique nature of the international environment through a consideration of the American experience in particular.
