The B.A. in International Studies is an interdisciplinary program that combines critical thinking and analysis skills, ethics, and cross-cultural studies. Through Regent’s international studies degree program in Virginia, you will study cultures with a Christian perspective and can expect to become a high-level critical thinker and well-rounded professional. Our program will prepare you for a career in a number of local, state, federal, and international agencies and organizations where you will be equipped to lead from a Christian worldview. You may also chose to pursue graduate-level education in diverse fields such as law, political science, international business, and public policy and administration.
As an International Studies major, you may choose a study abroad internship that provides further in-depth study of an area of interest. Students not selecting the study abroad internship will take those required 3-6 credits in either the major core courses or major electives. Given the global nature of the program, students are also required to be proficient in a foreign language (20 hours of coursework or place test equivalent).
120 credit hours (includes 49 general education, 27 international studies core, 3 history, 20 foreign language, 21 additional electives including optional study abroad internship).
This degree is offered entirely online or on campus. However, second- and third-year language courses are offered only on campus. To meet the language requirement, online students will need to transfer credits from other accredited programs
