Global Leadership is a unique blend between history, government, leadership, and culture. Our courses literally cover the earth. We look at countries, their various people groups, their governments, and their leaders. Along with a core curriculum of multicultural studies, students view the interactions between the nations through history and in our own day. This major, which replaces the former International Studies major, provides the interested student with knowledge and preparation for a career in the international arena. The Pre-Law program provides students with the opportunity to explore the legal profession through coursework and membership in the Pre-Law Society.

Favorite Thing About Work:
I am excited to begin teaching in the Pre-Law program for this fall. I have been teaching International Law, along with Church Administration and Law, but now I am adding in the traditional courses associated with law school prep. Additionally, I am looking forward to working with the Pre-Law Society, a student club that helps students, regardless of their major, prep for law school. Should be a great year!

I really enjoy the notion of government. I have studied it most of my adult life. I love reading about countries and their leaders throughout history. Every time that I go overseas with students, I look for texts that tell the stories of the culture, the country, and government that we are visiting so I can understand why they are the way they are. Learning just doesn't end for me.
