Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
Inspired by Daniel, Esther, Nehemiah, Paul and others who ministered at the intersection of faith, culture, and power, Crown College’s International Relations major develops thoughtful and articulate professionals and international workers able to serve in today’s demanding and shifting contexts. Built on the foundation of the Christian Studies and General Education Core, International Relations prepares students to integrate Jesus-centered faith with practical and fruitful service among both the poor and the powerful among the least-reached peoples of the globe.
Crown’s International Relations major also stands alone for its intentional incorporation of rigorous intercultural training, with graduates excelling in the increasingly needed skills of behavioral and cognitive frame-shifting. This major is applicable from traditional overseas roles to contemporary political settings.
International Relations Major (B.A.) Courses
Students may accentuate their major core studies by carefully selecting electives in consultation with their advisor. Areas of focus may include the following:
At least 30% of this degree, or a minimum of 38 credits, must be at the upper (300-400) level.
* Some courses from the Christian Studies Core and Major Core can be used to fulfill requirements in the General Education Core. By doing that the number of electives needed would increase so that the minimum of 125 credits is reached.
1 Select humanities electives from COM, ENG, ESL, FAR, HIS, HUM, LAN, MUS, PHI, or PRC.
2 Select social science electives from ANT, CSJ, ECO, ESL, GEO, HIS, POL, PSY, or SOC.
3 Fine arts courses include music, art, drama, and dance. COM 328 also qualifies as a fine arts elective. (Only three credits of music organizations and/or lessons can be counted toward humanities/fine arts requirements.)
Students apply for departmental acceptance during their sophomore year spring semester or their junior year fall semester. A minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA, GPA of 2.5 for courses in major, and completion of half of the Christian Service requirements are required for departmental admission in the International Relations major.
