New IGS Major Concentrations

January 18, 2022

IGS has revamped the IGS major with the establishment of three new concentrations:

  • Global Health and Development
  • International Order
  • Law, Justice, and Human Rights

Students who declare the major will select a concentration, and will be required to complete 6 electives within the concentration. This will allow undegraduates to gain expertise in the concentration area, which will be helpful as students pursue career opportunities after graduation.

Please note, students who entered Brandeis University prior to Fall 2022 have the option of fulfilling the IGS elective requirements under the previous Major requirements, which can be found on the University Bulletin.

You may compare and contrast the curriculum prior to fall 2022 with the new curriculum through this pdf document.
