What will I learn?

The Global and International Studies Program aims to help students develop an understanding of how globalization continues to evolve, and to provide an academic background which prepares them for today’s many career fields that require knowledge of global connections, actors, and processes. Examples include, but are not limited to: careers in diplomacy and/ or an international organization, careers with non-governmental organizations, careers in the economics/ business field, and in the fields of journalism, research, and teaching. Many other fields, such as engineering, and health, benefit from a global perspective.

Global Studies is an interdisciplinary major, drawing from a variety of academic disciplines. These disciplines include Political Science, History, Communication, Economics and business, Sociology, and Environmental Studies. Combining them into one interdisciplinary, colorful major in order to understand the rapidly unfolding process of globalization - is the objective of our program.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe key developments in the ongoing process of globalization
  • Analyze the concept of global interdependence with reference to various characteristics of globalization and to specific global problems
  • Connect concepts related to political, economic, cultural and ecological globalization with events discussed in contemporary news
