International and Global Studies BS - Career Opportunities

Whereas "International and Global Studies" at many schools means only that subset of political science called International Relations, RIT's International and Global Studies program rigorously draws ideas from across the entire spectrum of thought: the social sciences, humanities, sciences, and fine arts. Combining language training, communication skills, education abroad, and a disciplinary focus within a demanding overarching global perspective, International and Global Studies is a useful preparation for virtually any endeavor. Many of our graduates go on to graduate or professional schools in the U.S. or abroad. Others chose to go directly into business, global development, human rights, or other fields, and many may enter government jobs or work in international organizations.

RIT students in International and Global Studies develop enhanced communication and language skills, competence in a world region or a major contemporary issue in International and Global Studies as a preparation for professional employment in government, international and nonprofit organizations and agencies or private corporations and businesses.
