Specializations

  • One of the advantages of the IIC program is the flexibility of the curriculum. While many students have expressed their appreciation for such a broad selection of classes, they have also asked for a guide to which classes might be best suited to their interests.

    The following is a list of areas of specialization compiled by IIC professors from which students may choose their own specialization. The courses listed under each area are suggestions only, and are not complete listings; students are not required to enroll in them (unless otherwise noted). They are simply intended to help students choose classes that will best serve their interests and goals. It is also possible to construct individualized areas of specialization; however, these must be approved by an IIC advisor and the IIC Faculty Liaison from Korbel.

    Please be aware that many classes are offered only once during the academic year and that schedules are subject to change. Students are advised to check the dynamic online course catalog (see the Registrar’s website) frequently and contact relevant professors and faculty if unsure about a class. Entrance into certain courses may be especially competitive; for these reasons it is wise to plan ahead and select two or three backup courses. 

    Sample Areas of Specialization

    • Global Health Communication
    • Media, Globalization and Culture
    • Global Environment
    • Human Rights
    • Global & Multicultural Strategic Communication (Non-Profit or Corporate)
    • International Administration
    • International Politics
    • Media Practices & Production

    Note:  Students may take just one 3000-level course to count toward their degree and this course must be listed as appropriate for both upper level undergraduate and graduate students (see Course Catalog at: http://www.du.edu/registrar/course/index.html).

    University College courses do not count toward the IIC degree.
