Welcome

Knowledge of the world beyond the United States is an essential part of the liberal education that is the goal of the Williams experience.”

In this era of cultural, technological and economic globalization and also of pressing international crises including environmental degradation, poverty and underdevelopment, terrorism and pandemics, knowledge of the world beyond the United States is an essential part of the liberal education that is the goal of the Williams experience. Both within and outside the classroom the College provides a rich array of opportunities to pursue that goal.

The International Studies Program is designed to increase awareness of those opportunities and to provide a centralizing mechanism to encourage gaining such knowledge with perspectives that are cross
disciplinary and comparative.

For a full listing of International Studies related events on campus, please see the public calendar.
