International Business and Foreign Language Study: A Model for Cooperation.
Lubell, Alfred M.
Steps in the development of a major in International Studies at the State University of New York at Oneonta is described. Designed jointly by the Foreign Language Department and the Business Department, the program includes the following components: an overseas segment, advanced foreign language requirement, and course requirements for economics and international relations, including diplomatic history and foreign policy. The program's emphasis on verbal skills blends well with the expectation that all students spend time in an overseas study program or an internship in a business either in a foreign setting or heavily involved in international business. Emphasis in this paper is on how a shrinking Foreign Language Department with limited resources worked with a growing Business Department to design and implement a new interdisciplinary program of study. Twenty pages of appended materials include departmental memos, lists of courses, and course requirements. (LB)
