In addition to the numerous programs spread throughout its more than 150 fields of study and its 16 colleges and instructional units, Illinois also offers a wide range of academic programs and degrees focused on international and global issues.

Students can pursue a major, minor, concentration, or certificate, study a language, or simply enroll in one of the hundreds of courses addressing issues of international importance. These programs provide students with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of various cultures, languages, and histories, as well as to gain expertise in particular disciplines.
