International Studies


ECU’s International Studies programs help prepare students for success in an increasingly globalized society. Undergraduate students may choose to complete a minor, major (through the Multidisciplinary program), or Global Understanding Certificate program; graduate students may pursue a master’s degree in International Studies, a certificate in International Management, or a certificate in International Teaching. These multidisciplinary programs provide students at all levels with the opportunity to become more familiar with the social, political, cultural, and economic issues of importance. Courses are complemented by the availability of a wide range of supporting coursework in languages and world religions. International Studies programs prepare students to work in a wide range of careers, including multinational corporations, nongovernmental organizations, and development organizations, among others. Please note that admission to the graduate program has been paused, effective fall 2023.
