Global Studies

"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page."
  - Saint Augustine, Christian theologian (345-430)

The Global Studies degree at Colorado Christian University is relevant to a wide variety of careers, ranging from international business to worldwide aid organizations; many students serve as missionaries and do pastoral work. As a Global Studies major, you'll be encouraged to complete a semester of study abroad during your time at CCU. Near the end of the program, you'll participate in a capstone course called Global Engagement, where you'll explore Christ’s mandate to the Church and learn how that call personally affects you.

Global Studies In the Christian University

There has never been a greater need to gain a broad global perspective. As the world continues to change, it is crucial for evangelical Christians to understand and relate to different cultures. The Global Studies degree at CCU is built on a foundation of international political science and economics, breaking down ethnocentrism and giving students a global perspective on cultures throughout the world. You may combine the Global Studies major with any number of different minors to help you customize a program in your area of interest.
