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.

The Global Studies Program is housed in the College of Arts and Sciences and features the Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies, established in 2016. This degree program encourages interdisciplinary study of global issues while promoting cross-cultural perspectives.

Students in the Global Studies Degree program will focus on one of four themes: Global Health, Global Conflict and Security, Global Sustainability and Development, and Global Cultures. These themes are then applied to one of six world regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and North Africa, and Russia & Eurasia. The major also features a Leadership in the Global Economy concentration. See the links below for details.
