All International and Public Affairs concentrators take a common core of classes. This includes the choice of a “gateway” lecture course that examines broad global themes and provides an introduction to multidisciplinary analysis; one qualitative and one quantitative research methods course (language study at the 0400 level or above can substitute for one of the methods courses); a junior seminar; and a capstone.
In addition to taking these core classes, students choose one of three tracks of specialization:
Total Credits: 11 (12 with Honors Thesis)
See courses page for CURRENT offerings.
The Gateway course students select must come from the approved list of Gateway options and cannot be substituted with other courses offered through IAPA or through other concentrations.
The Track Foundational course students select must correspond to the student’s selected track, must come from the approved list of Foundational courses and cannot be substituted with other courses offered through IAPA or through other concentrations.
|Qualitative Research Methods||1*|

Non-credit bearing, optional but very strongly encouraged.
One of the two methods requirements – either the qualitative or quantitative course – can be substituted by successful completion of a Brown or Brown-approved language instruction course at the 0400 level or above. The upper-level language course must be taken for a grade.
