The growing impact of globalization, and the increasing interactions among global cultures and societies, provide the backdrop for the International Studies program at Doane. This is a multidisciplinary major, offering students the opportunity to take internationally-focused classes from the humanities, social sciences, and economics/business, depending on their region or topic of interest.
The information systems major is designed for students interested in pursuing careers related to the analysis, design, development, implementation, and support of computer information systems and technology in organizations.
"The past does not repeat itself, but it rhymes."
History is the study of the past, of events, of people, of ideas, and of change over time. Students of history learn about what shapes our historical consciousness and how the present continues to be influenced by the past. At Doane, the history major offers the opportunity to study Western and non-Western cultures, from the Roman period through contemporary times.

The study of economics at Doane is designed from a liberal arts perspective and emphasizes international economics and financial markets.
Doane Chemistry offers students the chance to observe the small stuff: the molecules that make up the world around us, from the fuel we put in our gas tanks to the complex inner workings of our own bodies.
