  • individually selected foreign areas of emphasis ('concentrations') in which students take a minimum of 12 hours in at least 3 different disciplines or fields
  • proficiency in a modern foreign language which provides important communication skills as well as additional depth in the chosen regional area of emphasis
  • at least 1 semester of study abroad
