Concordia University Irvine will enroll the final cohort for the International Studies undergraduate major this Fall 2019. If you have an interest in International Studies, we encourage you to explore the History & Political Thought Major, International Business Major, or the Missiology Minor. We also offer a unique study abroad program called Around-the-World Semester® with a Global Cultural Studies Minor. If you are considering continuing your education through graduate studies, Concordia also offers a Master of Arts in International Studies.
Concordia University Irvine's International Studies major includes core courses from the fields of anthropology, communications, economics, history, sociology, and theology. The four-semester modern language requirement will strengthen your cultural engagement while preparing you for international study. Furthermore, the major offers you the opportunity to select an emphasis in line with your interests, strengths, and vocational goals:
A unique component of the International Studies major is the opportunity to study abroad. Living in a country like France, Germany, or Greece allows you to pursue academic work that complements your course of study and gain a deeper understanding of the language and the culture. This life-changing experience will equip you to serve and lead in roles that require a holistic understanding of the interdependent and cross-cultural complexities of a globalized world.
