There are hundreds of options for Global Studies majors to learn abroad because GBST is so BROAD-BASED! Education abroad helps you to:
- Study processes and problems that transcend national borders, such as politics, violence, security issues, migration, travel and social movements, literature, arts and media, economic systems of trade and finance, health and disease, environmental change, and sustainability
- Prepare to become a global thinker and problem-solver for the 21st century
With careful planning, learning abroad can fulfill many of your GBST requirements, such as two disciplines in a geographic area, your foreign language requirement, two courses in world history, and/or your capstone project. YOU choose YOUR pathway!
