The INTL faculty & staff can also help you search for scholarships, internships or new sources of financial aid, for which you qualify. To find out what’s available – and the eligibility requirements – contact the department office at 843.953.4884.

Part-time jobs, internships, service learning, and volunteering will play an integral part in your preparation for the future. The faculty and staff in your major area will provide you with wonderful networking opportunities.

Extracurricular activities can enhance your classroom experiences. There are more than 150 clubs and organizations for you to consider, most of which will help you hone your leadership skills, help you connect with students who share your interests, and in some cases, expand your academic experience.  Of particular interest for current students may be the opportunity for membership in the National Honors Society for International Studies, Sigma Iota Rho.  You might also consider working with the Center for International Education as a Study Abroad Peer Advisor or as a Cougar Ambassador.  Many INTL majors also elect to become Global Scholars or participate in the the Global Ambassadors Program
