What You Will Learn

The International Studies Program is for students pursuing career goals in the fields of international affairs, diplomacy, world languages and cultures, teaching, and research.

The mission of the International Studies Program at County College of Morris (CCM) is to provide students with the general education course work and global perspective needed to transfer to a similar program at a four-year college. In addition to general education courses, students are required to take courses in culture, geography, world literature, and four semesters of a world language.

Why Study International Studies at CCM?

Students enrolled in the International Studies Program have the opportunity to study abroad to enhance their course work. CCM, through its membership in the College Consortium for International Studies (CCIS), offers students the opportunity to study in twenty-five countries. For more information about study abroad, visit CCM’s website.

Students also benefit from small class sizes in many of their courses. The small class sizes allow faculty and students to interact in a seminar-like environment that facilitates and enriches the classroom experience.
