International Studies Course Descriptions
The International Affairs Center at Spelman College (IAC) was established in October 1989 to further enhance internationalization of the College. Initiation of the IAC was supported, in part, by the Ford Foundation through a grant to the Executive Council on Foreign Diplomats.
Its mission is to broaden and deepen African American students' understanding of global issues, histories and cultures in preparation for entry into careers in international affairs. The IAC seeks to demonstrate through its programs that international issues and concerns are salient to the interests of Black Americans. Programs are designed to infuse liberal learning with an international perspective. The IAC implements its mission under the leadership of President Beverly Daniel Tatum.
