Why a concentration in international studies?

Regional and functional concentrations are open to students of all majors and offer an interdisciplinary approach to the study of a particular area. They combine course work at Washington College in anthropology, business, economics, history, political science, modern language with at least one semester (or summer) abroad in the region of focus. 

The regional concentration is designed to serve students who wish to develop a focus on a particular world region, for those who plan to enter business, government, or international agency service and for those who are preparing for graduate study of a particular region.
