In order to meet the ever-changing needs of a diverse community, Merced College has developed a degree that embodies the spirit of global education. The International Studies area of emphasis allows students to take courses that will foster an appreciation of various cultural perspectives. Students will gain an understanding of the benefits of living in a culturally diverse world. The development of cross-cultural tolerance and competencies provides students with skills valued in careers involving intercultural relations such as those in the fields of public service, teaching, health care arts, and business.
The Merced College International Studies Area of Emphasis helps prepare students for upper division International Studies majors at universities in California and other states. It also can help currently employed individuals increase their skills in dealing with international issues they and their employers may encounter.
Students are strongly encouraged to consult with a counselor for specific information regarding their career planning.
