Students will acquire a broad multidisciplinary education while enhancing their overall sense of global awareness. While providing a wellbalanced curriculum, the major also provides opportunities for students to concentrate on a particular country or region of the world. This major will complement the existing International Business major and the Foreign Language International Business major. Its emphasis will be on social, cultural and international relations which can be applied not only to business and governments but other institutions as well. CAREER OPPORTUNITIES: Employment at home and abroad with government, private agencies, multi-national corporations, in tourism and travel, in communications, in bilingual and bicultural agencies. This major is also an excellent preparation for graduate studies in languages, law, international relations and global studies.
