Diplomatic and Government Work

Students interested in the foreign service or other areas of government should focus on the social sciences. Courses in history, political science, economics, and business administration are recommended for those intending a career in public administration. Students interested in the foreign service should seek a broad knowledge in history, economics, geography, political science, English, and languages. These students may want to consider a composite major in international studies or the special program in foreign area studies in the Department of Political Science.

Students who intend to enter other branches of governmental work should consider majors in business administration, economics, or political science. These students should also consider being part of the Washington Honors Semester Program. Internships are also available, including a one-hour campaign internship open to all students during every national election year. Students may also want to participate in Hope's Model United Nations held each spring semester on campus.
