The International Studies Major is an interdisciplinary program within the College of Letters & Science. New students interested in declaring the IS Major should meet with the IS Peer advisor and attend one of our workshops.
Summer 2015 Advising Hours
Due to SOAR, the IS Major does not offer walk-in advising during the summer. Please make an appointment to meet with an advisor using WisCal.
IS Major advisors are happy to schedule Skype appointments for students who are traveling abroad or have returned home for the summer. Please use WisCal to set up your appointment and then send an email to the advisor indicating the date/time of your appointment and your Skype username.
Summer and Fall 2015 IS Major Course Lists
Courses for Fall 2015 will be available in the course guide and class search on Wednesday March, 11th. The IS Major prefers to give departments at least 3 business days to address errors in their timetable after the course guide is published. Keeping with our goal of having accurate course lists, the IS Major will post Fall 2015 course lists online Wednesday, March 18th. Fall and Summer course lists for the IS Major are now available.
Summer is a great time to develop your resume with an internship. Although the weekly IS Major e-newsletter is on hiatus from May 12th until August 31st, our Facebook page will contain updates about internship and job postings. Also, please check our events website for upcoming information.
