International Studies

The University of South Alabama International Studies Program breaks the traditional mold to offer a multi-disciplinary and multi-college program designed to prepare students for the needs of today’s global society.  Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies degree at South refine their knowledge in foreign language, history, political science, geography and more to receive broad training in regional studies or international relations. This major provides a unique combination of course work and opportunities outside of the classroom, through internships and study abroad, to become competent in our globalized world. 



▼   International Studies Careers
International studies graduates are ready to enter the private and public sectors with the skills needed in an interdependent world, or to pursue further graduate-level study in area studies, international business, language, law or international affairs. As an interdisciplinary program, International Studies exposes students to a variety of courses from multiple perspectives, encouraging students to think critically about global issues and problems. Recent graduates are employed in communications, peace studies, logistics, immigration and international law, education, international trade, environmental sustainability, and more.
