DescriptionThis program is designed to provide a sound background for students who intend to pursue careers in businesses with interests overseas, church work in the third world, teaching, journalism, community relations, translation, international development work, the travel industry, diplomacy, government, international trade and commerce, as well as for those wishing to prepare for advanced scholarly work and research. Currently the International and Development Studies option focuses on Latin America.

It is recommended that students undertake an average of three hours per week voluntary work during at least one semester of the second year in the program. This can be fulfilled in a number of ways and might include activities involving community education, non-governmental organizations, church groups involved in international issues, etc. Students will thus be introduced to the work world as it pertains to the international sphere, blending academic studies with the realities of employment.
