Campus tour: pardee school of global studies
International Studies students can take courses from a number of departments. Students should carefully prepare their program of study in conjunction with their faculty advisor, our Peer Advisors, and/or our Director of Undergraduate Studies because some of these courses have prerequisites and not all courses are offered every year.
IS majors and minors should complete and update their Course Plans as soon as they begin the program. Every semester, bring your Course Plan to your advising meetings and compare it to your official course audit to ensure that your classes are correctly designated in the UIS registration system. The IS Major Course Plan form and the IS Minor Course Plan form can be found here. (Before you fill out these forms, you must first download and save them to your computer.)
The following is a list of pre-approved IS major and minor courses that will be offered in Spring 2021. You can also download our master list of pre-approved electives, which is particularly useful if you choose to search by class rather than concentration; it contains around 300 pre-approved courses as well as notes on which concentrations they apply to. (Be aware that the “master list” contains all pre-approved courses in each semester, so some of the courses mentioned might not be offered in subsequent years.)

College experience – studying international
Hello, I just applied EA to BC (hoping to get in! ), and my intended major is International Relations (or whatever it’s called at BC, there are so many names to keep track of). Is there someone here who is pursuing an IR degree, and if so, how is the program going? I read that after freshman year, I must apply for the major, and I’m not sure how that works. Also, is BC a decent IR player in general? I understand it will never be on par with the schools in Washington, DC, but I’m curious if learning it at BC will be a waste of time. Although I have backup majors, IR is my true love. Thank you for any details!! 4 answers 100 percentsavehidereportsavehidereportsavehidereportsa Voted up This discussion has been ended.
