Fall 2013 Registration Packet

Below is a listing of International Studies courses being offered in Fall, 2013.

Please read the following notes carefully:
* The listed courses all count toward International Studies in general. However, to count toward your major requirements, they must fulfill an IS core requirement or be an appropriate elective for your chosen track.

  • Understanding the listings below: The first number is the CRN (course registration number), followed by the department and course number, then the school and course section, then the number of credits, course name (and Fordham core attributes), days and time and instructor. L=LC day; C=LC eve; R=RH day; E=RH eve.
  • Example: INST 2500 L01 4 = INST 2500 [course] L01 [LC day, section 1]; 4 [# of credits].
  • Notes: a) The attributes for the Fordham core should be with the course name.
    b) 5000 level courses are grad courses; they may be open to undergrads—check with the instructor.

* Language courses for the IS major are not listed here. Please see the language requirements below.

* If you think a course not on the list should be, please contact me at: Please send the CRN, the course number (eg. INST 2500), course title, and the professor’s name. Rules of thumb—For the 1) international track: a course must be global or compare regions of the world; 2) regional track: a course must focus most attention on one region. For both: course should include material that comes up to the present time.
