International Development Major

The International Development Major at Houghton College provides an intellectual, spiritual, and practical foundation by which graduates may engage the many forms of development in strategic and sustainable ways at home and abroad.  For greater breadth and depth, the International Development Major students pair this major with another major ( Political Science, Sociology, Business, Biology, Communication, Art, or Religion) to address global issues from political, environmental, and economic perspectives; or two minors from these and other approved fields of study.

International Development Graduates will experience pressing international development initiatives and will understand effective avenues for building a Christian vocation of global service.
