The International Studies curriculum provides a strong foundation in global and international studies. The curriculum is designed for students planning to transfer to baccalaureate programs with an international or global focus in such subjects as world language or literature, area studies, international relations and international studies. The courses required in the International Studies curriculum are designed to be transferable to other colleges and universities.
Students are expected to consult with a counselor or an academic advisor upon entry into the program and in subsequent semesters. Transfer planning should begin early so that the student can gain the most benefit from the program. Students who follow the International Studies curriculum and plan to attend a specific four-year college after graduation should choose elective courses that duplicate as closely as possible those in the first two years of the program at that college.
Note: Some international programs at transfer institutions require world language proficiency at least through the intermediate level. It is recommended that students complete, if possible, a world language through the intermediate level. Students should consult with the Career and Transfer Center about world language requirements at transfer institutions.
