Lee introduces new international studies major
  
Lee University’s Department of History, Political Science, and Humanities recently added a new international studies major to its degree program offerings. 
  
“The international studies major is highly committed to Lee’s mission of instilling responsible citizenship, ethical action, and redemptive service in our student population,” said Dr. Ana Alves Shippey, assistant professor of political science. “International studies does that by offering an understanding of the global dynamics that affect peoples and communities in the regional and local levels, thus equipping students to promote and pursue the Christian values of justice and the sacredness of human life in a globalized world.” 
  
The department hosted an event earlier this month to introduce the major to current students and faculty. 
  
Shippey talked to the audience about what the major looks like, the required courses, and emphasized the interdisciplinary nature and flexibility of the major. 
  
According to Shippey, the major makes for a great option for students interested in doing a double major, adding a language minor to their education, or who want to do an extended study abroad program. She also talked about how the major specifically relates to the Christian faith. 
  
After Shippey spoke, Lee alum David Coffin, who currently works at the U.S. International Trade Commission, spoke on how his education at Lee helped him prepare for his current career and what it looks like to work in an internationally oriented field. 
  
A brief reception followed the talk, where faculty answered further questions about the major with students one-on-one. 
  
For more information about the international studies major, email Shippey at aalves@leeuniversity.edu.
