The B.A. in Comparative International Studies is a program that prepares students to become citizens of the 21st century global world. The program offers a comprehensive interdisciplinary curriculum with a broad view of comparative international studies, combining the study of two world regions with language, study abroad, and research. Such a broad-based program is, indeed, timely in today's world of globalization.
The program allows students to explore areas of study in the social sciences and the humanities from an interdisciplinary perspective. Through the examination of themes, namely, human and social development, culture and society, populations and borders, institutions and change, and through the comparison of two world regions, the program of study in Comparative International Studies integrates knowledge about broad global processes with comparative analytical methods and techniques used to study them. Graduating international studies majors will be able to view complex global issues from broad, comparative, and interdisciplinary perspectives, hence, will be equipped with the knowledge, the skills, and the tools necessary to function well in the age of globalization, and to tackle complex world problems of the 21st century in a versatile way.
