International Studies

The world continues to grow into an interconnected community, and international study is influential for understanding its challenges big and small.

As a student in the international studies program, you’ll spend at least four weeks, preferably a full semester, studying away from campus. Students also have the option to complete an international internship, which can lead to a job offer after graduation. You can focus your studies on a particular country, a selected part of the world, or international relations.

This special opportunity to engage in study abroad opportunities includes domestic programs, and other international internship programs. Some of these include experiences like The Washington Center domestic program, or other opportunities abroad from related campuses in China, Costa Rica, Egypt, England, Ireland, Kenya, Korea, Spain, Russia, and more.

Graduates enjoy many career options, ranging from international business occupations to service vocations in organizations such as the United Nations or world relief groups. The major is also excellent preparation for graduate study in politics, law, economics, history, or other related fields.

The Department of Business Administration at Waynesburg University has received specialized accreditation for its business programs through the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE) located at 11960 Quivira Road in Overland Park, Kansas, USA. For a list of accredited programs please view our IACBE member status page.
