Why Study?

In this ever changing and dynamic international world in which we live, International Studies is growing as an essential field of inquiry. It is a diverse and exciting area of teaching and research with its own professional association, the International Studies Association. At Aquinas College it provides extensive information and contacts for Aquinas College faculty and students who study international phenomena.

For Aquinas students, studying abroad is the perfect opportunity to step outside the boundaries of a conventional education, gaining hands-on experience in new cultures and ways of life. After returning, many students are never the same. Coupled with the passion for service, a hallmark of an Aquinas education, graduates may find themselves traveling the world to the aid of the global community. Just ask Adam Hii, a 2011 graduate currently living and working in Botswana. Hii is serving as a member of the Peace Corps, an American organization which provides humanitarian aid and other services to various countries around the world.
