Distinction in the Major

In order to gain sufficient fluency in a foreign language and to become thoroughly familiar with a foreign culture and business practices, Track 1 majors have the option of studying abroad or completing an internship in a Spanish-, French-, or German-speaking country. Majors who have already lived in a foreign country and are already fluent in a foreign language may do a domestic internship with a local business which engages in foreign commerce. In order to enhance their understanding of American culture and business practices, international students are required to complete an internship with an American business, governmental, or nongovernmental agency.

The program is administered by the World Cultures & Business Executive Committee which is headed by two Co-Directors representing the College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Business.
