International Studies Breadth Requirement

The following courses satisfy the International Studies area of the Seven Course Breadth requirement. Department headings marked "any" indicate that all undergraduate courses of two units or more offered by that department are acceptable for breadth credit (with exceptions noted). No more than two courses from any one department may be used to satisfy the Seven Course Breadth requirement (L&S Discovery courses are exempt). Courses numbered 84, 97, 98, 99, or above 190 do not receive breadth credit. In cases where any of the courses listed below is offered in the summer (indicated by an "N" prefix) or is offered online (indicated by a "W" prefix), that course will be treated in the same way as its regular semester counterpart and will satisfy this breadth area.

Third semester or higher level foreign language courses satisfy the International Studies requirement, as listed below. Heritage language courses are excluded from International Studies credit. Second level language courses may be used only in rare cases where the courses are not used to satisfy the Foreign Language requirement.

The International Studies requirement may also be satisfied by participation in the UC Education Abroad Program or an equivalent program.
