  • Highlight all the categories with MINUS SIGNS
  • Get a copy of the International Studies MAJOR Degree Plandocument
  • Create a tentative plan for the next two, three or more semesters
  • Check the online catalog for any course prerequisites
  • Create a class schedule for next semester by checking the online class schedule and taking special note of the number of remaining seats
  • Select alternative courses for those courses with fewer than 10 remaining seats
  • Write down questions to ask your advisor
