Programs of Study




The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies is an interdisciplinary degree that enables students to better understand today’s world and prepares them for graduate study and employment in a broad range of professional fields. Students complete core courses in anthropology, economics, geography, political science, and research methods, and specialize in one of the following six thematic or regional concentrations:



Students in this major complete an International Educational Experience, consisting of a study abroad program, an internship overseas, or an internship with an international focus in the United States. International Studies majors must study a foreign language through the Intermediate II level or demonstrate equivalent proficiency, and are encouraged to minor or double major in a foreign language. A student who combines International Studies with another major may be able to double–count some courses toward the completion of both programs of study.

Osprey Maps should be used in consultation with an academic advisor after admission to UNF.



The minor in International Studies allows undergraduate students to pursue an interdisciplinary and comparative study of foreign cultures and societies.
