International Programs

Students have the opportunity to earn a degree in a robust International Studies program housed in the Department of Political Science. This program offers broad training in the liberal arts and human sciences, emphasizing the study of foreign languages, and a specialization in a degree concentration.

In addition our college hosts education abroad opportunities all over the world. This year CLAHS faculty will lead winter and summer programs across three continents. The programs represent a variety of disciplines; many include not only study opportunities but also internship or service learning components.

International Support

International Initiative Small Grants

International Initiative Small Grants are available to departments and other administrative units, student groups, individual faculty, and staff within the College.  The purpose of the grants is to support public events during the academic year that are focused on enhancing international learning, scholarship, and engagement.
The Dean’s Advisory Committee on International Initiatives (DACII) administers the grant program.  A single unit/group/individual may submit more than one proposal in any funding cycle; however, it is the DACII’s intention to support a variety of events.

Global Partnership Sustainability Awards

Global Partnership Sustainability Awards are available to sustain and strengthen existing international partnerships.  Preference will be given to proposals that address a collaboration at a critical point in its relationship or proposals that broaden the current scope and/or impact of a partnership.  The Global Partnership Sustainability Council and the Dean’s Advisory Committee on International Initiatives administer the awards.  Grants are available to administrative units (centers, departments, programs, schools) as well as individual faculty members within the College.  A single unit/group/individual may submit only one proposal in any funding cycle.
