Bachelor of Arts in International Studies
The International Studies major in the Department of Government, History, and Criminal Justice emphasizes interdisciplinary and biblical integration, an international and cross-cultural dimension in its curriculum, strong academic content, critical thinking and analysis, and ethics as guiding principles in the education of international studies. Students in the program are thus educated to be high-level critical thinkers, excellent professionals, and ultimately, well-rounded human beings.
The International Studies Program offers a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and a minor for students in other majors.
The BA in International Studies prepares students for careers in a number of local, state, federal, and international agencies and organizations. Successful careers often evolve into major management, administrative, and leadership responsibilities in government and private industry. Students earning a BA degree also pursue graduate level education in diverse fields such as law, political science, international business, and public policy and administration.
The International Studies major is composed of a required curriculum of 50 hours that provides students with an understanding of the various fields within and approaches to the discipline of international studies. In addition, students may choose a 3-6 credit study abroad internship that provides further in-depth study of an area of interest. Students not selecting the study abroad internship will take those credits in either the major core or major electives. Given the global nature of the program, students are also required to be proficient in a foreign language (20 hours of coursework).
