International Studies Program


Senior Assignment


During the senior year, each International Studies major is required to create a capstone project that pertains to the student’s specific concentration area and that also integrates a thematic focus and a regional focus.

For example, a student taking coursework towards the International Politics and Diplomacy concentration area might pursue a senior assignment project combining the theme of human rights and the region of Latin America in a project addressing the issue of street children in Brazil.

Each student enrolled in the senior assignment course will be required to write a report about the issue addressed, in a format provided at the beginning of the semester, as well as to make a public presentation of the project at the end of the semester. Thus, the student will have opportunities to examine and reflect on an International Studies issue as well as to draw further attention to and build further awareness about the issue selected.
