International Studies is an interdisciplinary undergraduate program drawing on the courses, faculty, and resources of a large number of UNM departments and colleges, with a central orientation toward contemporary global themes and different world areas. Because of its interdisciplinary nature, the program is housed in the College of Arts and Sciences and the College’s International Studies Institute but also draws on faculty and courses in the Colleges of Fine Arts, Architecture and Planning, and Education.

The core elements of the International Studies major and minor allow students to combine studies in languages, humanities, and social sciences with studies in such fields as fine arts, architecture and planning, and education in order to create an integrated, interdisciplinary undergraduate concentration.

The International Studies major and minor is administered by the International Studies Institute (ISI) in the College of Arts and Sciences. The ISI not only provides the administrative support and advising for the International Studies major and minor but also organizes lectures, lecture series, and special events and provides student scholarships to undergraduates.
