Established in 2009, the department brought together a number of existing interdisciplinary programs under a single umbrella. We currently offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies, as well as minors in International Studies and Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Studies. The minors in Islamic Studies and Judaic Studies are no longer accepting new students. Although these two minors have been discontinued, students already enrolled will be able to complete their programs and receive the appropriate degree designation.

The GIAS office is located in Macy 103. Please feel free to drop by or contact the office if you would like additional information about any of our programs. We look forward to our role in promoting the continuing internationalization of the university and providing students with opportunities to pursue programs of study that are designed to prepare them for the rapidly changing world of the 21st century.
