Explore the global stage
Students of international studies are encouraged to focus outward and explore other cultures and issues of globalization to develop a well-rounded worldview that informs their everyday life as a citizen of the world.
The understanding of international affairs, cultures, and relationships are a vital part of any modern education.
The requirement to study abroad allows students to learn about a new culture and experience the interactions of people from different cultures so prevalent in modern business, politics, and almost any industry.
Create Your Own Major
Baker works with each student to design a major focusing on the international topics of choice, drawing from many disciplines on campus to create a major that caters to your international interests and objectives.
