International Studies is a broad and interdisciplinary field of study that educates students to appreciate the social, cultural, political and economic characteristics of national, regional and global communities. The International Studies Program at The College of New Jersey encourages exploration of interconnected nature of our rapidly globalizing world, and the effects of all forms of policy on the global constituency. 

It is based on the conviction that historically informed and politically aware students with knowledge of a language other than their own will think more critically and act more responsibly in a shrinking world.

The major is overseen by faculty from the History, Modern Languages, and Political Science departments in TCNJ’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences and from the School of Business. Students will take introductory courses which count toward General Education requirements and, working with an adviser, will choose a major specializations from four geographic areas [Europe, Latin AmericaEast Asia, the Middle East] and two functional subjects [DiplomacyInternational Economics and Trade]. Study abroad is required, and students are also encouraged to pursue an internship with an international focus.
