Course info


UWM's Global Studies programs combines the benefits of a liberal arts education with the training of a professional program to prepare students to work internationally or domestically on matters that cross borders and cultures. The College of Letters and Science and several of UWM's professional schools have formed a partnership to offer students this unique program of study that will prepare them for positions of global leadership in our increasingly interconnected world.

At UWM, Global Studies is a rigorous program that incorporates classes across disciplines, a required study abroad experience, an overseas internship, and extensive foreign language requirements. This challenging but rewarding program prepares students to excel in a job market that demands knowledge across subject areas and a culturally sensitive and savvy approach. The analytical, communication, and cultural knowledge and skills acquired through the Global Studies degree will serve students well in any area of work.

Students at UWM choose from one of six tracks:

Global Communications - with a focus on language, culture and the technology of modern, global communication (option for a joint degree between the College of Letters and Science and the School of Information Studies)

Global Management - focusing on business and the world economy (joint degree between the College of Letters and Science and the Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business)

Global Security - dealing with aspects of conflict and change such as water resources, war, human rights, borders, and global health

Global Sustainability - where students develop expertise in matters of the environment and government systems

Global Urban Development - an ideal choice for students interested in cities, population growth, architecture, and urban planning (joint degree between the College of Letters and Science and the School of Architecture and Urban Planning)

Global Health - a track for students interested in global careers in healthcare, international aid, healthcare policy, international health education, health outreach, and international health regulations (option for a joint degree between the College of Letters and Science and the College of Nursing)

Students often wonder what the differences are between Global Studies and International Studies. In addition to the specialties mentioned above that are available to Global Studies students, in the Global Studies program, students are required to reach foreign language fluency equivalent to the eighth semester of study and are required to complete both a study abroad and an international internship experience.

Global Management Track

The Global Management track of UWM's Global Studies program focuses on the impact of globalization on business and the world economy. Global Studies-Management prepares students as future managers, capable of analyzing transnational issues; strategizing within a global, cross-cultural context; and implementing projects with a strong understanding of globalization's implications for the private and public sectors. Students are required to complete a study abroad program, an overseas internship, and study a foreign language, both practical and applied experiences that provide a distinct edge. This track will prepare students to assume leadership roles in many areas, but it will be advantageous especially in such fields as international business, consulting, education, government, and public policy. In addition, graduates of this track will meet the background course requirements for admission to an MBA program. The College of Letters and Science and the Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business jointly award this degree.
