The A.A. degree in International Studies prepares transfer students for a major or minor in international relations / global studies. Majors acquire knowledge and skills from a variety of disciplines, such as Anthropology, Geography, Political Science, Economics and Modern Languages. Students learn how culture affects behavior, ideology, and institutions and they develop insight into their own language and culture. Employment opportunities for International Studies majors exist in business (trade, finance), electronic and print media, federal and state government agencies, non-profit international organizations (U.N., Red Cross, etc.), and other organizations involved in international or transnational affairs.
