The international studies department educates students in a manner to enhance their opportunities for success in global careers. The international studies major provides the student with an interdisciplinary, internationally focused education in language, history, geography, philosophy, Bible, political science, humanities, business, and experiential study abroad. International Studies majors may participate in a specialized track in their chosen vocation, using available elective courses under the direction of the discipline director and the international studies coordinator. As a Christian liberal arts university, Belhaven emphasizes the importance of Christian values and ethics.
In addition to the general education courses required for graduation, the bachelor of arts in international studies requires 52 hours to include: BIB 210 and 408; BUS 420; IST 202, 300, 301, 303, 305, 306, 401 or 450, 402, 403, and 444; plus one of the following Political Science courses: PSC 212, 311, 316 or 325.
Global Studies minor:
The Global Studies Minor (GSM) in the International Studies department is a strong complement to most majors as it offers students an interdisciplinary framework to better understand the world we live in and have been called to serve. Through a service-learning experience, it also equips students to work in a cross-cultural environment both locally and globally while respecting and embracing diversity. The GSM requires 15 hours to include: IST 202, 300, 305, 444 and 456, as well as a choice of one of the following: BIB 210, 408, IST 301, 303, 306, or 403.
