Program Learning OutcomesCurriculum Code: LAIS-AA
 

     This curriculum is designed to prepare students for transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a baccalaureate degree in some area of international studies. The program is part of a larger education movement which recognizes the need to respond to the globalization of the economy, the interdependence of nations and peoples, and the growth of international political institutions. Students in this program will ultimately seek careers in government or the private sector with an international orientation or emphasis.

     There are three options or areas of specialization within the program: business, humanities and social science. The study of foreign languages is an important component of the program. Foreign travel and learning about foreign cultures are also encouraged.
