PICS Language Requirement for the Major.

Sixth-term proficiency in a language other than English must be obtained prior to graduation; therefore, students should begin the language sequence early.

We believe that language study is a vital part of any liberal arts education and that students who major in international studies should be well prepared to work in environments overseas, or in companies or organizations that interact regularly with people from other countries. The PICS language requirement will not only be of benefit to the students in broadening their skills and their vision of the world but will also be an important signal to employers or graduate admissions committees about how our students are well-rounded and focused on the world and not just the United States.

Please see PICS website for details of and further information about the sixth-term language requirement.

See Sub-Plans for course requirements:

Honors

Students interested in the Honors subplan typically elect the Honors section of INTLSTD 101: Introduction to International Studies, and must complete INTLSTD 101 with a grade of B+ or better. Students who have declared a major in International Studies must have an overall GPA of 3.4, must complete all International Studies requirements for the major with a 3.4 or higher average in those courses, and complete a senior Honors thesis.

Students must earn C- or better in all required PICS courses.

During their senior year, students writing a thesis will enroll in INTLSTD 489 during Fall term and INTLSTD 499 during Winter term. The thesis will have a minimum length of 50 pages. Students are responsible for locating their own PICS faculty thesis advisor. Advisor and topic must be approved by PICS director.

An instructor will oversee the Honors subplan. This will include a class meeting with all Honors thesis students as a collective, at least twice per semester of their senior year, and once at the end of their junior year, to review requirements, answer questions, and discuss research practices and principles.

Each student will have an oral defense of the thesis in a meeting with the Honors thesis advisor, the Coordinator of Experiential, Independent, and Honors Education, plus one outside reader from the faculty.

Student grades on the thesis and Honors level will be determined by the PICS instructor in consultation with the Honors thesis advisor.
