  • Welcome to the Korbel BA Program!

  • Josef Korbel School of International Studies
  • From controlling weapons of mass destruction to arresting the spread infectious diseases, from finding solutions to climate change to managing borderless trade and investment, modern issues require international cooperation and collective solutions.  The world in the 21st century is truly globalized. Both the sheer volume and the speed of trans-border movement of people, products and data mean that no country or individual exists as an island isolated from international trends and challenges.  The interdependence of nations, and of people, is a fact of life.

    The BA Program in International Studies offers undergraduate students at the University of Denver critical knowledge and skills for succeeding in a world that has gone global. Whether your interests lie in business, law, environmental studies, social work, political science, or information technology, every student today needs to adapt to global issues, to grasp how the world works, and to have an international approach to their professional development.  The International Studies curriculum encourages students to learn about international events that directly affect their lives, and it gives them a foundation to enable their success in a rapidly changing world.
