International Studies

International Studies is an interdisciplinary major administered by the Department of Political Science. Students learn about the social, political and economic issues confronting the international environment as well as regions of the world. The major includes extensive studies in a language of the student's choosing. Available courses include:    

  • Multinational Business (summer in Europe)
  • Power Morality and International Relations
  • International Political Economics
  • Contemporary Continental Philosophy
  • Causes of War

Students interested in international studies and politics have the option of participating in multiple organizations including Model United Nations, Model Organization of American States, Model Arab League and the PAWS Program. These experiences give students an opportunity to witness and practice what they learn in the classroom.

Study abroad is recommended for all International Studies majors. This opportunity allows for a deeper understanding of their studies and the opportunity to use their foreign language skills. For information on all Baylor's study abroad programs, visit the Study Abroad webpage.

Graduates will be equipped for positions in international business, government, language services and education, humanitarian work and journalism. Some graduates will also choose to continue their studies through graduate or law school, which provide students with the opportunity to pursue international law or teach at the university level.
