Knowledge of the interdependent world in which we live and work is essential to all citizens. Through pursuit of the Bachelor of Arts in International Studies degree students develop international competence which involves understanding other peoples and societies well enough to work effectively with them on a broad range of common problems. The degree calls for the education and training of persons who are proficient in a language other than their own and who understand the history, culture, goals, aspirations and world view of a people utilizing that language.
