College of Letters and Science


International Studies


Erica Bornstein, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Coordinator

The International Studies (IS) Program is an interdisciplinary major administered by faculty members in the College of Letters and Science. The IS Program offers students an excellent opportunity to improve their understanding of the diverse cultures of the world and to begin developing the skills they need for careers that have an international dimension. The IS Program has grown steadily over the past 50 years to meet the needs for a more globalized education.

All interested students should consult the International Studies advisor at the earliest opportunity; they can declare the major once they have reached 15 credits. The advisor will assist each student in preparing a logical sequence of studies.

Honors and high honors in the major are awarded at graduation to students who achieve the following:

Honors: at least a 3.0 overall GPA with a 3.5 GPA on all credits in the major;

High Honors: at least a 3.0 overall GPA with a 3.75 GPA on all credits in the major.

The International Studies (IS) major offers a number of special programs designed to help students deepen their knowledge of international affairs. Students may receive credit toward the major for participation in study abroad programs or the United Nations Summer Seminar. Credit toward the major also may be obtained through a semester-long internship in an international business, a government office, or a private organization with an international focus, either in Milwaukee or abroad.

Course of Study: Major

The major requires 14 college credits or the equivalent in one foreign language. Students must complete at least one college course to meet this requirement; high school work alone will not suffice. Students must attain a 2.5 GPA in all UWM credits attempted for the major. In addition, the College requires that students attain a 2.5 GPA in all major credits attempted, including any transfer work.
