Program Overview

The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies provides a rigorous education in the political, economic, and socio-cultural aspects of the complex interrelationships that exist within and among nations in a rapidly changing and increasingly interdependent world. It also prepares students to be effective, globally aware decision- makers in the opening years of the 21st century. The combination of the knowledge of disciplinary fields with practical knowledge develops the foundation for careers in public and community service, diplomacy, the private and public sector, and graduate studies in the humanities and the social sciences.

In fast-developing and changing societies such as the United Arab Emirates, the people who understand the dynamic nature of the globalization of societies, their institutions, problems, and opportunities can most competently advance effective social, economic, and political developments.

Building on a foundation of faculty strength across disciplines in the social sciences and humanities (anthropology, film and literature studies, history, international relations, political science, and sociology), students in the International Studies program are offered a chance to specialize in one of three concentrations after completing at least 57 credit hours of core courses. The concentrations in International Relations, Political Economy & Development, and Middle East & Gulf Studies cater to different academic interests and career aspirations.
