International Studies, BA

This major is ONLY available to students in the Huntsman Program in International Studies and Business.

The flexible design of the Huntsman curriculum allows students to graduate in four years with a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies (from the College of Arts & Sciences) and a Bachelor of Science in Economics (from Wharton). Students take business fundamentals courses in the Wharton School, and also complete coursework in the humanities and social sciences by completing the College’s general education curriculum, while completing the International Studies major that includes advanced language.

International Studies is a major in the College of Arts and Sciences that is unique to the Huntsman Program; non-Huntsman students may not major in International Studies. The interdisciplinary nature of the International Studies major means that each Huntsman student is able to personalize his or her curriculum, and no two Huntsman students will have the exact same educational experience.
