Introduction to the Program

Ohio Wesleyan's International Studies program is ranked as one of the top 10 "Best Value" international studies programs in the nation (College Factual). Whether you are interested in examining issues in the world in general, or in a particular region of the world, the cross-disciplinary nature of International Studies at OWU gives you the opportunity to work closely with a variety of professors and develop a major that satiates your intellectual interests.

Program Features

  • You'll be encouraged to study abroad and supported in your efforts with approved off-campus programs on six continents, including OWU programs in Spain, Ireland, and Tanzania, and Great Lakes Colleges Association-approved programs in China, Europe, India/Nepal, Japan, Russia, and more.
  • Ohio Wesleyan's unique Theory-to-Practice Grants let you compete for University funds to support independent research throughout the world as you lay the foundation for your future.
  • You'll find plenty of internship opportunities, including the Wesleyan in Washington program, where you can earn academic credit for working in the nation's capital, and The Philadelphia Center, where you live independently and complete an internship in a government, business, or social-service setting.
