International Affairs Dual Major

http://www.cola.unh.edu/international-affairs

The international affairs (IA) dual major can complement and add a global dimension to any other major at UNH. The completion of the dual major requires no additional credits for graduation beyond the 128 required of all UNH students. All coursework required for international affairs must be completed with a grade of C or better. For information, contact the International Affairs Program Assistant.

Students who wish to declare international affairs dual major must earn a C or better in IA 401, have declared a primary major, and have a 2.5 cumulative grade-point average. Students are expected to maintain at least a 2.5 grade-point average, the minimum required for study abroad at UNH.

Note:
Participation in the international affairs dual major and minor is open to ALL students at UNH.  For instance, the Department of Civil Engineering has developed a dual-major program in civil engineering and international affairs. Students do not need to have pre-existing skills in a foreign language before coming to UNH. For more information about the civil engineering/IA program, contact Ray Cook at ray.cook@unh.edu.

International Affairs Language Requirement
IA majors must demonstrate functional reading, writing, and speaking ability equivalent to a third-year, second-semester college level (632). Students may take placement tests to establish proficiency. Native second language speakers are exempt from this requirement - speak to an IA advisor. Language study may be pursued at UNH; through study abroad in the summer, J-term, or academic year; or through transfer credits from other institutions with the permission of the IA advisor.

2

International Experience - Study Abroad
Minimum of eight weeks. The IA international experience is ordinarily conducted in a country or region consistent with the student’s language study. However, students may pursue their international experiences elsewhere by petition to the IA Program Chair.

The international experience (usually completed in the junior year) is completed before taking IA 701 in the senior year. Students may spend an academic year, semester, or summer in an academic institution, in an internship with a private or public organization, or in purposeful travel/research. Students must meet with the Study Abroad advisors at the Center for International Education and Global Engagement to plan their international experience, typically a year in advance of study abroad.

Electives (three total)

IA Dual Majors take three electives, one course from each category list: Politics, Culture, and History and from Science, Environment, Economy and Health. IA dual majors choose their 3rd elective from either list.
IA electives are offered across the university and may be used to fulfill Discovery, Honors Program and/or other minor requirements. Up to 8 credits may be double counted between your primary major and IA. Additional courses taken in the primary major may count for IA if these courses do not count towards your primary major requirements. Electives may be taken at UNH, on the international experience, or transferred from another university with permission of your IA advisor.
