Area Studies

International Curriculum Options at CC 

In addition to majors and minors in language study, Colorado College offers several majors and thematic minors that allow students to add expertise in a certain geographic region (area studies) or general expertise in a global context (international affairs option). 

International Affairs Option

The departmental major/international affairs option is designed to allow students the advantage of a traditional major along with development of an understanding of international affairs. It assumes that such an understanding begins to develop through study of a foreign language, an extended experience outside one's own country, and a familiarity with approaches that address the affairs of nations and peoples.
