Senior Projects are completed for the major requirement, and thus the Chinese Studies minors do not require a senior project.
International Studies is an interdisciplinary social science major, and students take courses in the departments of economics, history, modern and classical languages, and political science. The major consists of courses in the areas of economics, theory, U.S.-international relations, language, and a regional focus. Students electing East Asian studies as their regional focus take four courses in this area. International studies majors are required to undertake at least one semester of study abroad. Allegheny College currently has sponsored study programs in East Asia in China and Japan.
