INT*491*10 Description

International Studies Seminar

This course is designed to help students to consider in depth their off-campus experiences as an International Studies major and to draw connections among inter-disciplinary courses required of the major. The nature of theory, its application to International Studies, and problems involved in defining this field of study and in developing empirical methods for it will be analyzed. Special attention will be given to anthropological, economic, historical, and political approaches to International Studies, as well as to approaches that include textual analysis (including foreign language texts). The seminar also will provide students with an opportunity to discuss topics for their senior theses, a full draft of which is due upon completion of the seminar. This course is required for, and limited to, senior International Studies majors. Prerequisite(s): POL 104
