A message from the Acting Department Head Concerning International Study

Dear INTS Majors,
I understand that, given the ongoing COVID-19 situation and its impact on travel and international travel in particular, many of you are concerned about fulfilling your international travel and residency requirement for your major. More specifically, I understand that many of you graduating in Fall 2021 wish to know if this requirement will be waived and are asking this question of the Department’s advisors. While we do not have an answer to this question at this time, we are optimistic that we will have a definitive answer by mid-to late February. We will notify all students immediately when we have that answer. In the meantime, please refrain from asking the advisors about the waiver. They simply don’t know, and can’t help give you an answer at this stage.
Thanks & Gig’em!
Richard J. Golsan
University Distinguished professor and Acting Head, INTS
