Make Your Degree More International

The University of Calgary is committed to preparing its students for life in an increasingly global economy and society. An International Component will be part of every undergraduate student's degree program at the University when the current curriculum changes are finished, and are already a requirement of many programs. An International Component will provide students with an understanding of international relationships and issues with a particular view to the benefits and challenges of interaction of peoples, cultures and environments around the globe. It provides opportunities to develop an awareness of international, multicultural or aboriginal perspectives.

All students are encouraged to enrich the international component in their program in one or more of the following ways:

1. By participating in a term-abroad, field school, credit travel study, or student exchange experience in another country. Students should contact their faculty or the Centre for International Students and Study Abroad (CISSA). Visit the CISSA website for more information (http://www.ucalgary.ca/UofC/students/CISSA).

2. By including in their program a Major or Minor that focuses on international, aboriginal, or multicultural issues:

African Studies
Anthropology
Chinese
Development Studies
East Asian Studies
East Asian Language Studies
French
Geography
German
International Indigenous Studies
International Relations
Italian
Japanese
Latin American Studies
Russian
South Asian Studies
Spanish

3. By taking courses where the language of instruction is a language other than English. (Call 403.220.4000 for a list of such courses offered in French.)
