: 152

The international studies track is designed for students who envision a career in the international arena and plan to transfer into the upper division of another college or university with the intention of continuing their studies in such areas as international relations and area studies.

This track is for students who, subsequently, wish to work in this field, be it in government, international organizations, trade, finance, business, or related areas. All students in this track must see an adviser from the Department of History and Political
Science and identify as early as possible their transfer institution, as well as the particular field or track. The international studies track includes the general education requirements as well as a number of alternate course choices (listed in the footnotes), which prepare the student for particular transfer options in international studies, such as international relations and area studies.

Students may study abroad for a semester or travel in a foreign country during the summer as part of the international studies track. The international studies adviser will aid students in integrating their studies abroad into the degree program.

A suggested course sequence for full-time students follows; part-time students should consult an adviser.
