Introduction

The International Studies major provides a focused educational experience aimed at familiarizing students with the key structural features and dynamics of the international system and preparing them to enter the growing international job market. Processes of globalization, in part driven by global capital flows, expanding trade and the unrelenting development of communication and information technologies, have affected virtually everyone in every country, often in ways we are just beginning to understand. These developments often pose serious problems for government and other societal institutions, while also creating a demand for individuals who understand international processes. Jobs in virtually all sectors have acquired a decidedly international dimension, whether in trade, tourism, finance, public policy, government, or education. INS Graduates have moved on to the corporate world, the public sector, started their own businesses, or have continued their studies at the graduate level (i.e. Law, Business, and International Studies).

Educational Objectives

International Studies seeks to provide students with the ability to understand:

  • International politics within the context of interstate relations and foreign policy.
  • International economics and its sub-discipline international political economy, including such issues as trade and production, money and finance, and development.
  • Social science research methods including qualitative, quantitative, comparative case study and formal modeling.

Students are encouraged to explore interdisciplinary options that further their understanding of international studies. This type of coursework can be taken in other disciplines offered at the university or taken outside the institution, either through exchange programs or other inter-institutional options provided by UM. Students will demonstrate the ability to synthesize the various thematic areas of the discipline through required participation in advanced seminars. Seminars will stress analytical participation, oral presentations and the ability to interpret and critique core theoretical readings.

Degree Programs

International Studies provides both a major and minor option for students. The flexibility of the program often allows students to double major without the need to extend their university studies. Students are encouraged to speak with the International Studies advisor to explore such possibilities. The major in International Studies leads to the degree of Bachelor of Arts.

Advanced Writing & Communication Requirements

Details of the Advanced Writing and Communication Proficiency:

Degree candidates must complete at least four writing courses, and at least one writing course must be in one of the student’s major disciplines (not applicable to BLA students who do not select a major). Students should consult the bulletin section of their major to find out which writing-intensive courses are acceptable to the discipline

Individual writing course offerings may make the writing component independent of the rest of the course.  As such the writing component might be optional, the writing component might not contribute to the overall grade, and writing credit might be awarded even if the overall grade is a fail.

Transfer students may use a maximum of two courses towards the writing requirement.

Departmental Honors

The Department of International Studies encourages its majors to intensify and deepen their knowledge of the field through its departmental honors program. The program is designed to give students the opportunity to explore various topics and problems in international studies that are of particular interest to them, to work more closely with departmental faculty, to develop skills in research and thesis preparation, and in some cases to prepare for graduate work in international studies and related fields.

Minimal requirements for the program are as follows:

  1. a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30;
  2. a cumulative grade point average in international studies of at least 3.50; and
  3. a thesis that is approved, with a grade of at least B+, by a member of the departmental faculty.

After reaching agreement with a member of the faculty who will serve as the honors thesis advisor, students writing a senior honors thesis will enroll in INS 418 and INS 419, Honors Thesis, for a total of six credit hours [the credit hours may be spread over two semesters or taken in a single semester]. The thesis itself is expected to be an extended, coherent work of scholarship on an issue of relevance in the field of international studies.
