International Studies

International Studies: Expand your mind; change the world!

The International Studies Department is one of the oldest and largest undergraduate programs in the US that trains students in international relations, comparative politics, and related fields in a liberal arts environment. An entire academic department dedicated to international studies is unusual at an institution like Rhodes.  For this reason and many others, our Department is a special place! 

The Curriculum

Fallou Ngom presents Forensic Linguistics and Asylum Seeking Language Analysis for the Determination of Origin (LADO)

Fallou Ngom is Professor of Anthropology and Director of the African Language Program at Boston University. His current research interests include the interactions between African languages and non-African languages, the adaptations of Islam in sub-Saharan Africa, and Ajami literatures—records of African languages written in Arabic script. He seeks to understand the knowledge buried in African Ajami literatures and the historical, cultural, and religious heritage that has found expression in this manner.
