We Are the IIS Division.  Welcome!

Included in our Division are the ICS departments, International/Global studies, and 12 World Language Departments.  We work with students to develop a sophisticated knowledge base and critical understanding of the multiple definitions and elements of culture, including the psychology, history, and sociology of language, politics, and power dynamics in human relationships at the individual, interpersonal, and institutional/systemic levels. 

We welcome you to explore our course offerings that can lead to certificates and degrees in areas that can build your capacity to work effectively on a wide range of areas, including but not limited to fields of community advocacy, education, public policy, etc. and also enhance your effectiveness and desirability in a number of other careers and vocations.  And, specifically regarding our ICS course offerings, De Anza College so clearly recognizes the importance of what every person needs to understand through our ICS/Ethnic Studies courses, that we are the only program on Campus for which talking at least one course is a requirement for graduation; that is, De Anza College's "ICS Requirement" for graduation with an AA or AS degree. (ICS and ICS-created courses are indicated by an asterisk in the College Catalog.)
