International Studies Degree

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

A unique degree for those who will serve in a global setting. The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies degree, offered on our Minnesota campus, provides students with the tools they’ll need to understand, adapt to, and flourish when interacting with people and organizations from other cultures. This interdisciplinary and highly flexible degree prepares graduates for a wide range of opportunities in business, ministry, international nonprofits, counseling, teaching, social work, development initiatives and more.

The study abroad component includes a full semester of preparation followed by the overseas component. The study abroad experience is further enhanced by a semester back in the U.S. that includes an analysis and assignments related to the intercultural aspects of the semester abroad.
