The B.A. in international studies is an interdisciplinary curriculum that focuses on the connections between politics, economics, and culture at the international level, providing students with an understanding of how the contemporary world works and with the tools to succeed in it. In addition to a regional focus (East Asia, Europe, Latin America, or Middle East), Croft students select a thematic concentration on one of the following: global economics and business, international governance and politics, or social and cultural identity. Croft students pursue advanced proficiency in a foreign language as an integral part of their studies. Accelerated language programs are currently available in Arabic Chinese, French, and Spanish. Students may also choose to study German, Italian, Japanese, Korean Portuguese, and Russian. A degree from Croft can lead to a career in law, international business, journalism, or education and research, to employment with agencies such as the U.S. Foreign Service, and the United Nations, or to work in the nonprofit sector, nongovernmental organizations, and the intelligence community. More than half of the institute's graduates continue their university studies in professional or graduate schools.
