Seminar in International Studies

INTS 5000 - Seminar in International Studies

This seminar combines the various disciplines that constitute International Studies into three core units: (1) Social sciences; (2) Humanities; and (3) Development Studies (development economics and administration). Area Studies faculty from relevant departments will conduct the individual seminar sessions. The seminar has three goals: (1) to introduce concepts and theoretical issues of the fields in each of the core units; (2) to introduce research approaches and the formulation of research questions in each of the core units; and (3) to help students develop analytical thinking and writing skills in an interdisciplinary context. These goals form the basic structure of the three units and will be met through a combination of reading, discussion, short papers, presentations, and research exercises. Library research and on-line resources are also covered.
