Dr. Chris Bjornsen, Director of International Studies
The International Studies program offers opportunities for students to gain an understanding of other cultures through a minor in International Studies, as well as enhanced modern language and study abroad opportunities.
Longwood University offers a minor in International Studies, combining courses from a variety of disciplines for those students who wish to devote a part of their education to learning about cultures around the world. Students combine the interdisciplinary focus in International Studies with any Longwood University major in preparation for international careers, occupations within the U.S. that have an international or multicultural focus, or graduate programs with an emphasis on multicultural or international understanding and cooperation. Students can gain first-hand international experience during study abroad in summer/winter courses or semester programs, and enhance their international skills through advanced foreign language courses and study abroad.
Students who wish to participate in the International Studies minor should contact the Director of International Studies in Ruffner 305.
