Major to Career: International Studies

International Studies is a multidisciplinary field that encompasses economics, history, geography, political science, and cultural area studies. Additionally, International Studies requires students to develop linguistic fluency in a second language of their choice.

The International Studies program provides an avenue for students wishing to maximize the opportunity for linguistic and international competence while developing a disciplinary specialty that would allow them to enter the workforce directly or to prepare them for graduate school in a number of different disciplines or professions.

Students of International Studies value charity and a love for all mankind, ideals that Joseph Smith formulated as follows: "A man filled with the love of God is not content with blessing his family alone, but ranges through the whole world, anxious to bless the whole human race."
