One of the most exciting areas of study and preparation offered at Pepperdine is the International Studies major. This major provides insight into pressing international, political, economic, and cultural questions, while at the same time giving flexibility to those interested in particular regions in the world. The International Management emphasis, for example, examines international affairs from the perspective of those who anticipate managing an enterprise in the globalized world. We also offer specializations in international politics, international/intercultural communication, international economics, Europe, Latin America, and Asia. We believe that the International Studies major is one of the most viable ways to prepare for the ever-increasing international opportunities at the beginning of the 21st Century.
