Majoring in International & Area Studies not only allows students the opportunity to study other languages, histories, cultures, political systems, and more, students also have opportunities to be engaged in international communities and global topics here in Salt Lake. Use the resources below to find ways to be involved, gain leadership skills, and keep engaged in your areas of interest!

Student Tea Times
