Welcome to the Global Studies Program!


Global Studies is a challenging, interdisciplinary field of study that provides students with an understanding of processes and problems that transcend national boundaries. Global Studies majors investigate interconnections that have emerged through global historical processes, transnational mobilities and identities, supranational norms, laws, and institutions, as well as the dissemination of ideas, belief systems, literatures, and arts across borders. Global studies majors also investigate global causes and consequences of division, fragmentation, and conflict.
