Fall 2020 Course Offerings (for students 2019-2020 catalog year and prior)

This page lists Fall 2020 courses that count toward the International Studies major and minor. 

This list is for use by students whose degree evaluation reflects a catalog year prior to the 2020-2021 catalog. International Studies majors who are under the 2020-2021 should consult this page instead.

Explanation: The program of study for International Studies will be significantly different beginning with the 2020-2021 catalog. We will have one consolidated program of study, with no concentrations. This will not impact you, unless you want it to. However, if you do plan to move your catalog year forward to take advantage of those changes, the current programs of study for the six concentrations may not be the best guide for you at this point. Talk to David Kersey in COAS Academic Advising if you need guidance on this.

A few reminders:

  • Students should consult with their academic adviser each semester to ensure that they are making appropriate progress toward completion of their degree. Make an appointment through MyWings. Also, see our Advising Checklist.
  • To review the current requirements for the International Studies major and minor, see Programs of Study.
  • Students in the International Studies major should begin completion of the Foreign Language Requirement as early as possible. For help, see Foreign Language Study.
  • Further information on courses, including times and locations, can be found in the online course schedule.
  • Courses listed here are subject to change and cancellation.
  • Students must meet established prerequisites to enroll in any course.
  • If a particular elective course is relevant to your academic or professional interests but is not listed for your concentration, contact your adviser or the director of International Studies.
  • This list is subject to revision. Courses will not be removed, unless listed in error, but corrections may be made, or additional courses added. 

Suggested Lower-Level Electives 

WOH1012 (GW) World History I (online)

WOH1022 (GW) World History II (online)

These lower-level courses are not required prerequisites for any upper-level courses on this list, and cannot count toward the International Studies major itself. They are, however, good preparation for upper-level courses in history, international relations and other areas. Both are options in the "Thinking Critically" category of UNF's General Education Requirements. Both also count toward the Gordon Rule writing requirement.

Recommended Foundation Courses

CPO2002 Intro To Comparative Politics (online)

INR2002 Intro to Intl Relations (online)

These courses are not required for entry into the program, but are the required prerequisites, respectively, for the two "Frameworks" courses (CPO4014 and INR4603), one of which you must take in the core of the major.
