International Studies

International Studies students are curious global citizens who want to make their mark on the world.  The major program provides them with the tools and guidance to focus their interests and accomplish their goals. We prepare CSULB graduates for good jobs in fields like non-profit work, international development, international affairs, international trade and business, education, and law.

International Studies helps students develop strong analytical abilities while teaching them how to integrate a wide variety of disciplinary methods, language competencies, and cross-cultural understandings into the study of global issues. Advisors work closely with students to help guide them in a way that is sensitive to their personal constraints (economic, family, visa, AB540), while also pushing students to their maximum potential. As a result, IST graduates have success in graduate school admissions and enter the workforce with skill sets that employers value.
