The international economics and modern languages concentration is open to economics or modern language majors. It is interdisciplinary in nature, with coursework in both the Boler School of Business and the College of Arts and Sciences in the Department of Classical and Modern Languages and Cultures.

The objective of the concentration is to provide modern language majors with proficiency in international economics, or to provide economics majors with proficiency in at least one foreign language and familiarity with that language’s culture.
