The international studies major provides students with a political view of the international community. Utilizing courses in economics, geography, history, literature, and political science, this program prepares students for careers in areas such as diplomacy, intelligence, international media, international relations, and missions. Given the missional nature of many of our students, many are also pursuing opportunities with non-governmental organizations dedicated to international adoption, relief for persecuted Christians around the world, hunger relief, and other humanitarian pursuits.
Liberal Arts Core
The faculty of Cedarville, and particularly the faculty of the Department of History and Government believe in the value of the liberal arts core. We want our graduates to be educated individuals, not just trained employees. We recognize that both education and training are vital, and we are convinced that in this day and age college graduates need to know how to learn as much as they need to know how to do a task. The career experts suggest that graduates of colleges today will change careers 4-5 times in their lifetimes. Those shifts require a certain set of skills that the liberal arts courses help to develop in our students.
