Certificate in International Studies

The United States is significantly affected by, and to an important degree responsible for, an internationalized and globalized U.S. economy and society. To be a more astute employee and a more capable citizen, students should understand the U.S. – and themselves – from an international and global perspective. Therefore, FHSU is pleased to offer a program related to International Studies: a Certificate of International Studies (IS). This certificate is an interdisciplinary program and can complement any major offered by FHSU.
