You can find a complete listing of courses approved for International Studies for Fall, 2014 on our Course Listings page. Before going to these course listings, please carefully read the following review of major requirements and notes on registering.
* The listed courses all count toward International Studies in general. However, to count toward your major requirements, they must fulfill an IS core requirement or be an appropriate elective for your chosen track.
- Understanding the listings below: The first number is the CRN (course registration number), followed by the department and course number, then the school and course section, then the number of credits, course name (and Fordham core attributes), days and time and instructor. L=LC day; C=LC eve; R=RH day; E=RH eve.
Example: INST 2500 L01 4 = INST 2500 [course] L01 [LC day, section 1]; 4 [# of credits].
- Courses may have additional Fordham core attributes to the ones listed here. To be sure look up the courses. If you are receiving this electronically you may be able to simply click on the CRN as a live link.
- Courses with a 5000 number are graduate courses that may be open to undergraduates—check with the instructor.
* Language courses for the IS major are not listed here. Please see the language requirements below.
* If you think a course not on the list should be, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send the CRN, the course number (eg. INST 2500), course title, the professor’s name, and a course description. Rules of thumb—For the (1) international track: a course must be global or compare regions of the world; (2) regional track: a course must focus most attention on one region. For both: a course should include some contemporary material.
