Welcome to the International Studies Program! Our program offers an undergraduate major and a community for students, alumni, faculty, and staff interested in foreign countries, cultures, and issues.
By completing a major in International Studies, students develop expertise in a region of the world, including one of its languages, and in a transnational topic. They also become familiar with a variety of international issues and frameworks. They use this expertise and knowledge to understand and analyze the dynamics and complexity of the human world.
The International Studies major is useful for careers in the arts, business, engineering, government, health, law, media, and the nonprofit sector, among other fields. Recent alumni work at Catholic Relief Services, the Cleveland Clinic, IBM, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the U.S. Department of State, the World Bank, and Xi’an Aston School in China. Our alumni are also completing graduate degrees at various institutions, including Harvard Law School and the London School of Economics and Political Science. Recent alumni have served in the U.S. Peace Corps and have won the Fulbright award.
The program connects majors and faculty with international interests through our newsletter of events and opportunities, our lists of courses with international content, our study abroad map, and our directory of CWRU faculty teaching and conducting research on international topics. Our majors and alumni interact through our mentoring program, career workshop, and LinkedIn group.
