The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies teaches students to think critically and reflect upon the complexities of today's local, regional and global challenges.
The Bachelor of Arts (BA) major in International Studies takes a broad, interdisciplinary perspective and concentrates on the role of economics, politics, and philosophy in shaping culture and nations. Accordingly, the major offers students both theoretical and practical insights into the sweep of human history, from antiquity to the present. With its particular emphasis on the development of notions of liberty, democracy, and economics, the major aims at equipping students to better understand the ideas, societies, and institutions that comprise our contemporary world.
