Millersville University offers a major and minor in international studies. Many faculty from various disciplines teach in the program.

International studies offers students a valuable perspective and useful skills for careers in government, international relations, foreign service, law, business, teaching, journalism, communications, or for proceeding to higher degrees. For students working toward other degrees, including degrees in the sciences, mathematics or the technical disciplines, a minor or a second major in international studies will provide a global frame of reference and preparation for future work with international colleagues.

International studies prepares students for success in a world made smaller by the steady increase of international contact in society, politics and business. The international studies major and minor emphasize comparative social, cultural, economic, environmental, historical and political systems worldwide. Comparative studies of music, literature, religion and education also are offered. Through these studies, students acquire knowledge and tools that enable them to analyze and understand the complex world in which we live.
