This interdisciplinary major combines the strengths of our International Studies Program in the Business Department with our Humanities Department. It leaves room for students to tailor an individual course of study that includes business, regional studies, international travel, language, literature and history courses among other options. Students work closely with advisors to design an academic plan with a region of focus.
