Global Studies majors are interested in the workings of the world and are curious about how individual events make a global impact. Our students build a foundational knowledge of geography, history, and world politics and experience firsthand how to work in an international environment during an intensive, semester-long practicum abroad.
You will take electives that will develop your understanding across disciplines, from philosophy and religion to business and economics to art, culture, and politics. All Global Studies majors culminate their degrees in writing original theses that connect their hands-on experiences with class information and real-world issues.
Each Global Studies major chooses an area of concentration to focus his or her studies. View concentration descriptions.
