Department of International Studies

The Department of International Studies offers diverse curricula that immerse students in the social, political, economic, and cultural implications of globalization. The degree combines a linguistic and cultural proficiency with a flexible set of tracks and a mandatory abroad experience. In addition to the BA in International Studies, the department offers Modern Language BA degree options in French, German, and Russian, as well as a BA in Classics. Students looking for language minors can find them in Arabic, Chinese, Classical Studies, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Russian. We also offer minors in Asian Studies and Comparative Cultural Studies. The programs give students a combination of measurable language proficiency and a global perspective that will serve both their professional and personal ambitions.

Required Foreign Language Placement Test. Incoming students who intend to enroll for the first time in any language course at Texas A&M University, who have previous knowledge, however acquired, of the language in which they plan to enroll, and who have no college credit in the language, must take the departmental placement examination to determine the appropriate course for their level of ability. The placement test also serves as a basis for credit by examination. The placement examination will be administered by the Department of International Studies during freshman conferences along with other credit by exam tests. The test will also be offered during Fall and Spring semesters. Students who take the Advanced Placement (AP) test or other acceptable tests which grant college-level credit in their foreign language of choice do not have to take the required departmental placement test. In this case, the AP and Achievement test results may be used for placement.

International students whose native language is not English are exempted from satisfying the University foreign language requirement. These students are not allowed to register in those courses in their native language that are used to fulfill that requirement.
