Bachelor of Arts in International Studies

The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies (BAIS) is a four-year multidisciplinary program that provides students with broad knowledge base to understand complex transnational issues in political, social, cultural and economic contexts. The graduates will be critical thinkers who have built up depth of knowledge and insight in international affairs and developed appreciation of own culture and respect to the world cultures along with enhanced communication skills. The knowledge and competences that our graduates gain in this program lead to successful careers in broad range of professions such as government, non-government, diplomacy, banking, multi-national corporations, and education.

In addition to majoring in International Studies, students may choose their free electives and course overloads carefully to get a second career track on any possible undergraduate area offered at ADA University. Second career track improves employability chances of students and allows to diversify student learning outcomes.
