Shippensburg University is all but certain to have an international studies major
up and running for Fall 2013 and beyond:
The SU Council of Trustees approved the creation of the major,
tentatively scheduled to begin this fall, at its March 15 meeting. The
proposal now needs final approval by the Pennsylvania State System of
Higher Education Board of Governors; that could come in April.
The addition of a major to SU’s international studies program, which
started in 1996, is a natural and needed progression, according to
Jonathan Skaff, professor of history and director of international
Shippensburg has 122 courses in international studies spread across 21
disciplines in the College of Arts and Sciences, the John L. Grove
College of Business and the College of Education and Human Services —
more than enough for a major, Skaff said...
Tracy Schoolcraft, associate provost and dean of graduate studies, said the PASSHE
board must approve a new major after a vote by an individual
university’s trustees. The board will consider the proposal at its
April 10 meeting.
