Curriculum

The curriculum is divided into: (1) core courses, (2) areas of concentration, (3) internship/study away options, and (4) a capstone paper. The core courses provide students with an interdisciplinary perspective on the global society and the issues that face the world. The area of concentration explores the common theme of international relationships in Business Administration, Foreign Language, or Political Science. Students select an area of concentration (Business Administration, Foreign Language, or Political Science) which gives them the content knowledge and skills to understand and analyze global society.

 

The internship/study away option is designed to immerse the student in a reality-based international experience. This requirement must be pre-approved by the student‘s major area advisor. The capstone paper allows the student to analyze a complex global issue in the area of concentration.

The program includes a 19-hour foreign language requirement that may be satisfied by taking Spanish at Newberry College or by taking another language at an accredited college.
