Do you "think globally"? If so, then the University of Saint Joseph International Studies major may be for you! A degree in International Studies prepares you to meet the professional challenges of an increasingly interdependent world.
The International Studies major (and minor, which is also available) is a multidisciplinary course of study designed to:
- provide an inquiry and issues-based outlook on the global interdependence;
- prepare leaders for proactive roles in global issues and concerns;
- develop a foundation for further studies and/or career development through the acquisition of applied and critical skills, including linguistic abilities.
The curriculum is based on the comprehension of the nature of contemporary global issues, and the ability to unravel the theories and debates implicit in the study of the most recent globalization phenomenon. This foundation is strengthened by the study of a foreign language, an experience abroad and a rigorous concentration of study in polity, economy and society or in languages and cultures.
An option exists for a self-designed concentration approved by the director of International Studies.
A degree in international studies promotes critical thinking skills along with a truly global experience. Graduates go on to rewarding international careers in the fields of politics, economics, business, modern languages, religious studies and art history. Some of the more popular career options include:
- Diplomatic Corps
- Non-Governmental Organizations
- Intergovernmental Agencies
- Intergovernmental Relations Specialist
- Trade Specialist
- International Banker
- International Lawyer
- Peace Corps
- Art Historian
- Museum Curator
- International Music/Arts Festival Organizer
