About Us Image

The Program in International and Comparative Studies (PICS) seeks to be a focal point for the interdisciplinary study of issues that transcend borders. We encourage students and faculty to broaden their horizons while they deepen their knowledge of particular cultures and political, economic, and social contexts.  We administer one of the fastest growing and largest undergraduate programs on campus in the form of both a major and minor as well as fellowship support for students and faculty.
