The International Studies major builds upon collaborative and interdisciplinary relationships that have developed since the program was launched as a minor in 2005. International Studies has been offered as a major at Bryn Mawr since 2012.
International Studies engages students in inter- and multidisciplinary course work that will prepare them for career opportunities areas such as work in:
- Public policy
- International politics, relations, and diplomacy
- International law and institutions
- Transnational or intergovernmental institutions
The program also provides a foundation for students interested in entering graduate programs in fields such as international politics/relations, international political economy/development studies, international law and institutions, and organizational theory and leadership.
