Keeping pace with a changing global employment environment and local employer needs, Friends University has added three new programs to its undergraduate majors: finance, forensic science and international business.

The finance program, which encompasses both global and domestic finance, will prepare students for a variety of fields, including investment, banking and financial management. Students will learn through case studies, trips to financial centers and simulations.

The increasingly popular study of forensic science will prepare students for a variety of careers, including arson investigations, drug analysis and autopsy. The degree offers two tracks of study: biology and chemistry. Students will study such topics as DNA analysis, trace evidence analysis, forensic toxicology and forensic chemistry.

A degree in international business encompasses a wide-ranging set of skills. The major is designed to help students prepare for a career in an organization that does business both domestically and in one or more countries abroad. Examples of potential employers include multi-national companies, non-governmental organizations, and other not-for-profits.
