Bachelor of Science in International Studies. Like the arts degree, this is an interdisciplinary program that combines critical thinking and analysis skills, ethics, and cross-cultural studies. The program will prepare the student for a career in local, state, federal, and international agencies and organizations where he/she will be equipped to lead from a Christian worldview. Upon completion, the student may also choose to pursue graduate-level education in diverse fields such as law, political science, international business, Christian missions, TESL, MATESOL, public policy and administration.Five areas of concentration include Latin studies, World culture studies, European studies, Inter-Cultural Christian mission studies, and TESL studies (Teaching English as a Second Language). However, to receive the BS degree, students pursing a major in International Studies do not have to take foreign language courses but must complete six additional hours to be selected from the options available in the Core Courses section of the degree.The faculty strongly recommends that students who expect to enter graduate studies in International Studies or a related field choose the Bachelor of Arts options.
