You’ll add experience through study abroad, language learning and service as well as through Nebraska Wesleyan’s diverse forum speakers, campus events and student groups.

International Studies majors and minors choose from these areas of emphasis:

  • Asia
  • Developmental studies
  • Foreign policy
  • Industrialized nations
  • Latin America

NWU International Studies requires modern language study as well as international experiences.

Get amazing results.

International studies is a popular choice among NWU students pursuing multiple majors. An emphasis on global perspectives pairs well with every professional field in our globalized economy.
