International Studies Minor
Maybe you’ve been everywhere from Trinidad to Budapest, or maybe you’ve never left your home state. No matter your previous traveling experience, if you’re curious about other cultures, you’ll find a home in our international studies program.
As an international studies minor, you will have the option to study in a variety of locations around the globe. Goshen College offers a unique three-month immersion program called Study-Service Term (SST), which will take you to far-away places to study a foreign language, live with a host family and complete a service assignment, like teaching English or working in a medical clinic.
During May term or summer, you will also have unique options for studying abroad in such 3-week classes as Arts in London, Business in Spain or China, Economics in Ecuador, Communications in Kenya, Nursing in Nepal, and more.
Even on-campus classes can lead you to new and unfamiliar territory. You’ll explore other belief systems and cultural differences with courses on Latinos in the Midwest, African history, Asian thought, and race, class and ethnic relations.
Your experiences at GC will not only improve your resume (our grads have been hired and accepted into graduate school specifically because of their unique Study-Service Term experience), they will also enrich your life and teach you what it really means to be a global citizen.
