Southern Oregon University

International Studies students develop critical thinking skills and a more sophisticated understanding of contemporary economic and political affairs grounded in a cultural, historical, and social context.

A combination of academic and experiential learning is encouraged, especially participation in study abroad and international internships. Students select a regional emphasis that reflects their interests and provides a focus for applying theory and concepts.

A major in international studies prepares students for careers in government service, business, law, journalism, social services, and teaching. International studies also provides a broad foundation for graduate study in a variety of social science, interdisciplinary, and regional studies programs.

Sample Program -- Each student’s program will be established with their major advisor upon admission to the Accelerated Baccalaureate Program.
