Area Studies

Area studies welcome students to gain expertise beyond the United States by studying Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East from a variety of disciplines. Area studies promote --and advocate for-- the internationalization of the university experience. These programs offer majors and minors, encourage study abroad, and the learning of foreign languages. They seek to sharpen students' critical and analytical skills and prepare them to be global citizens.
