International Studies

Opening Minds to the World!

International Studies at Southwest is established to promote global experiences through various programs for students, faculty, and staff at the college.

Southwest initiated its first study abroad program in International Studies with 25 students and two faculty members traveling to Cape Town, South Africa, where the group studied African literature and culture. This program has continued to grow in the years since.

You can learn more about study abroad opportunities by watching this short orientation video.
