The International Studies major or double major is an interdisciplinary program that combines rigorous preparation in the humanities and social sciences, competence in a field of science or technology, and the global perspective of WPI’s Project Program.
This program offers the flexibility to choose from courses that will develop specific skills and interests, along with international projects to broaden the range of experiences. A true marriage of theory and practice, our goal is to prepare students to not only understand the problems of the world, but to work on solving them.
Graduates have gone on to pursue law, public health, international affairs, medicine, and science and technology. Others have worked for international businesses, the Peace Corps, the US military, and a variety of technology firms in the private sector.
