The accelerated B.A./B.S. in History/M.A. in International Studies (European Studies) degree program is designed to equip students who have an interest in serving in a broad array of Western or Eastern European cultural contexts. By understanding the events and eras of history from the perspective of a Christian worldview, successful students of the program are prepared to engage peoples from European countries through an international internship experience, shaping the necessary soft skills to effectively lead in an increasingly international community while being sensitive to the respective histories and cultures of those communities.
