Coordinator-Stephanie Saunders


Faculty come from many departments including Business, Economics, History, Environmental Science, Modern Languages, and Political Science.

International Studies offers a multidisciplinary approach to understanding issues and regions in our increasingly globalized world. It is built upon the University mission of preparing individuals to be knowledgeable, independent, critical thinkers-educated for lives of leadership and service in an increasingly diverse society. It also builds upon the general education goal of global awareness, enabling students to demonstrate the interdependence of geographic, economic, political, social and cultural realities in the contemporary world.

International Studies Learning Outcomes:

Through this major, graduates will:

  1. become aware of international cultural differences so they may function more effectively in an increasingly globalized world;
  2. acquire a basic knowledge of a second modern language so they can work or travel independently in a country where that language is spoken;
  3. demonstrate the ability to examine a global issue in depth and understand how such issues may be viewed differently from a number of cultural or national perspectives;
  4. be prepared for careers in a variety of settings: international nongovernmental organizations (e.g., Habitat for Humanity International, Oxfam), international businesses, governmental agencies, and local human service settings;
  5. become better informed and more active citizens of the world; and
  6. contribute to the globalization of Capital University’s culture.
