Before graduating, International Studies majors have a capstone course called “Integrative project”. They combine their 50+ credit hours of courses in political science, anthropology, business, geography, language and theology in a final research paper which examines a certain phenomenon in their host culture. Mason Graves and Jelissa Myers both spent a semester in Spain, where they collected data on contemporary problems that Spaniards face. This month, both Mason and Jelissa will be presenting their research:
- Mason Graves: 1pm, Monday, April 15 in the student theater, will be presenting on the changing values in Spain due to globalization.
- Jelissa Myers: 11am, Tuesday, April 16 in the student theater, will be comparing Muslim and Catholic family structures and values in Spain with those of the typical American family.
