- In the INTL 201 - Major Proposal for International Studies course students will propose four elective courses that relate to the student's thematic/regional focus within International Studies. Up to three courses from their OCS program may count towards their major.
- The language requirement can be fulfilled in a number of ways, and students should consult with the INTL Director or another INTL faculty advisor. Students may include in their off-campus study a language particular to that program and one that is not taught at Denison. Students who enter Denison as multilingual students may have already fulfilled the INTL language requirement.
- All majors in International Studies must take INTL 400 - Senior Capstone Seminar in the Fall semester of their senior year.
