About the Department

The International Business and Cultures major, initiated in the fall of 1998, is a unique program offering a joint B.S. degree in the College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Business. The mission of this four-year program is to prepare our students for careers in international business. Students in this program prpare for their careers through the study of foreign languages and cultures combined with a concentration in international business. American students in Track 1 of this program study a foreign language and culture combined with a concentration in international business. International students in Track 2 of this program study English as a second language (if necessary), American culture, and a cluster of courses in American and international business. For students in both tracks, the program offers experiences beyond the classroom in the form of study abroad and/or internships in international business, governmental, or nongovernmental agencies.
