University of Washington

Undergraduate Program

The International Studies Program combines social sciences and humanities to examine international issues, problems and change. Using a diverse, multidisciplinary approach, the Program encourages students to look at our increasingly interdependent world in order to learn how to study it and understand its politics, societies, economies, and cultures.

The major consists of approximately 70 credit hours plus language study within a general four-year B.A. course of study. Majors specialize in an area of study along with approved tracks focusing on a world area or interdisciplinary theme.
