Department of International Affairs

The Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs (INTA) is an interdisciplinary degree that provides a background in social science disciplines and regional studies along with a rigorous foreign language requirement and mandatory international experience to give students the tools necessary to succeed in an increasingly globalized world. Students in INTA will develop analytical and extensive writing skills and will be qualified to pursue a range of professions including positions in the federal government related to international affairs, positions requiring a background in international affairs in other parts of the federal government, positions in primary and secondary education, positions in the private sector with firms dealing with the international economy, and positions in the state and local government that interface globally. 

The department offers diverse curricula that immerse students in the social, political, economic, and cultural implications of globalization. The BA in International Studies combines linguistic and cultural proficiency with a flexible set of tracks and a mandatory abroad experience.
