The International Studies Track offers an interdisciplinary curriculum within the Political Science Major.  It is one of two tracks available in the Political Science major. 

Political science majors can choose from one of two tracks: Political Science Track and International Studies Track.  Only one track must be completed to earn the B.A. in Political Science.  The information below does NOT apply to the Political Science Track.  It only applies to students who choose the International Studies Track.  A full description of both the Political Science Track and International Studies Track is available in the current catalog. 

The catalog language is necessarily incomplete regarding eligible courses for two International Studies Track requirements.  This supplemental information is available by following the two links below:

1) Approved Internationally-Focused Elective Courses from Other Programs for the International Studies Track

2) Internationally-Focused POS Topics Courses for the International Studies Track


1) April 2017 – For current political science majors in the International Studies Track, ECO 101 Introduction to Macroeconomics now counts as a substitute for the required ECO 104 U.S. in the World Economy.  This substitution is necessary because Economics is not able to offer ECO 104 in the near future.  Please note that ECO 101 can fulfill only one International Studies track requirement and will no longer count as an approved internationally-focused elective course unless you have received credit for ECO 104.
