The Department of International Studies uses an interdisciplinary framework to explore the interactions among peoples and nations that are separated by cultural and geopolitical boundaries. It draws on the insights and finding of the social sciences (political science, economics, sociology, geography and anthropology) as well as history, literature and the arts. Students in this area master information about the origins and development of different peoples and nations, the patterns of conflict and cooperation that have shaped the relationships between nations, and issues and problems that affect the future global order.
Congratulations to INT faculty members Heidi Nast and Shiera Malik for receiving the 2013 College Excellence in Teaching Award! Thank you both for your hard work and dedication to the department.
