International Studies

In an interconnected world, it’s important to understand how events in the news affect politics, business and everyday lives. Bradley’s international studies program prepares you to take a globally conscious perspective into the workforce, whether you’re interested in a local career with international applications or a globetrotting adventure as a diplomat or humanitarian aid worker.

As a student, you learn from Fulbright Scholar professors who have lived around the world. You also meet foreign affairs experts through the Peoria Area World Affairs Council and Bradley’s International Affairs Organization. The Institute for International Studies was founded as one of the first undergraduate programs of its type, and it remains one of two in the Midwest to operate as a standalone unit. This means the department can adapt quickly to meet students’ needs in the ever-changing field of world affairs.
