One from each of the four international areas:
International History, International Politics, International Relations, general course on an international topic (12 hours)
The language chosen and courses are dependent on initial incoming capability and progress. Students would typically focus on only one foreign language. A reasonable capability in a foreign language is required.
Students can establish their capability by successfully completing 12 credit hours (at least 6 credit hours of which must be at the 2000 level) or by passing an intermediate level language competency examination. If a student successfully completes a major or minor in a foreign language, they will also have met the language requirement for the international business emphasis.
Students whose native language is not English and who are studying in English will be considered to have achieved their foreign language requirement if they successfully pass an ESL test of their English proficiency.
The 12-credit-hour requirement must be completed through other coursework from the curriculum. A student can substitute another foreign language, subject to the approval of the chair of the Department of Management, if that student successfully passes written and oral examinations in that language.
A study residency of at least one term (eight weeks) outside the United States or an international internship/practicum in the United States is strongly recommended. For the study residency, students may attend one of Webster University's international campuses or an approved alternative location.
Students unable to study outside the United States can take an international internship (3 to 6 credit hours) with an approved firm or organization in the United States involved in international activities.
