Global Studies

The Global Studies major is a flexible, interdisciplinary degree that familiarizes students with the complex historical and contemporary relationships and processes that link together people and places.

By focusing on themes relating to globalization, this major also encourages students to recognize and to appreciate the world's diversity. To achieve this end, this major requires students to focus on a particular world region and to attain proficiency in a modern foreign language. The overall aim of this degree is to foster in students a critical, global outlook that will allow them to engage with pressing global questions and to thrive in an interconnected world.
