The International Studies Program also offers a choice of eleven disciplinary emphases. These allow the student to become a specialist in the discipline within International Studies and a specialist in the international aspects of a particular discipline.
A disciplinary emphasis works best when a disciplinary emphasis within the International Studies major is combined with a minor in the disciplne (History, Political Science, etc). Moreover, given that several courses may count torwards the International Studies major and a disciplinary minor, students are encouraged to pursue these minors.
Please consult your International Studies adviser, who will help you to maximize the many potential inter-locking related majors and minors, and ensure that these are completed in time. The earlier you consult with your advisor, the more options you will be able to pursue.
When choosing one of these Disciplines as an emphasis, the student must complete five upper-level courses from the disciplines included in course list 2.
