International Studies Major

Major Requirements

Students plan their fourteen-course major in consultation with their international studies advisor. All majors must complete the following:

  1. Introduction. One of INTL 110, INTL 111, INTL 112, INTL 113, INTL 114
     
  2. Language. Competency in a foreign language equivalent to six semesters of college work: examples are FREN 305 - Advanced Expression: Communication Tools and FREN 306 - Introduction to Literary Analysis, GERM 305 - German Through the Media and GERM 306, JAPA 306 - Third Year Japanese II, Portuguese through HISP 331 - Luso-Brazilian Voices: Conversations and Composition , Russian through RUSS 204 - Intermediate Russian II plus a semester immersion program abroad or its equivalent, or HISP 305 - Introduction to Hispanic Studies: Oral and Written Expression and HISP 307 - Introduction to the Analysis of Hispanic Texts. Students may complete this competency requirement while abroad. Likewise, students may meet this requirement in a language not regularly offered at the College by demonstrating equivalent ability, as confirmed by the department chair with appropriate consultation. Students for whom English is a second language have met the language requirement.

    Students choosing Classics as the disciplinary focus of their International Studies major may satisfy the I.S. language requirement by passing five semesters of Greek or Latin, plus a sixth semester of advanced independent or equivalent language work. Students focusing on Hebrew or Arabic may combine work at Macalester with coursework and/or experience abroad or at neighbor institutions.
     
  3. Study abroad. One semester of study abroad on a program chosen at least in part to support the individual major plan. International students at Macalester meet this requirement by completing a semester at Macalester.
     
  4. Capstone. A capstone experience of either a senior seminar in international studies or, in select cases, an advanced independent project developed under appropriate supervision and with the approval of the department chair.

    In addition to these four requirements, at the center of the major plan the student must complete a twelve-course sequence with the following characteristics:
     
  5. Disciplinary focus. To ensure rich knowledge of a specific mode of inquiry, five internationally focused courses drawn from a single disciplinary department including anthropology, biology, classics, economics, English, French, geography, geology, German studies, history, Japanese, philosophy, Hispanic studies, political science, religious studies, Russian, or sociology. Please see List 1 below. One of these courses may be a non-introductory culture-neutral methods course in the chosen disciplinary department. Please see List 2 below. This would be in addition to the methods and skills elective (H).
     
  6. Intermediate courses. To ensure immersion in global and transnational issues, five international studies courses beyond the introduction. Students may take a second senior seminar as one of these five. At times international studies courses are cross-listed with other departments. Thus there can be up to a two-course overlap between the courses for E and F.
     
  7. Complementary elective. Allows exploration of one or more interests on the major plan from another angle. The course is chosen from List 1 below. The course must be international, outside the disciplinary focus department (E), and cannot include International Studies courses (F) without chair approval.
     
  8. Methods and skills elective. One course chosen from List 2 below (courses with fewer than 4 credits may be combined to meet this requirement).

Additional Notes:

  1. Courses abroad. Courses taken during study abroad may count, when appropriate, toward the major; indeed students should tailor study abroad to contribute to the major plan.
  2. Language courses. Courses taken to satisfy the language requirement may not be included in the fourteen-course major plan, except when the focus department under "E" is French, German, Japanese, Russian, or Hispanic studies. In these cases one advanced language course may be counted among the five disciplinary courses.
  3. The major plan can include one internship.
