What will I learn?

Wichita State’s Bachelor of Arts (BA) field major in global studies allows you to focus your studies in multiple areas of interest - equipping you with skills and knowledge tailored to your career goals or graduate school plans. The global studies emphasis will enhance your perspective to help you operate as a well-informed global citizen in a world that’s increasingly connected, interdependent and complex.

Curriculum

The major consists of 36 credit hours selected from a list of approved courses that either address their subjects from a global perspective or address geographic areas outside of the United States.

The global studies field major is an interdisciplinary program which allows students to pursue their course of study in a broad, complex and interconnected way, and helps them discover the area of global studies which most interests them (e.g., literature, health, business, environment). This major provides direction for those interested in pursuing a further graduate course of study or for those who will search for employment. It will also prepare students to become well-informed global citizens.

Students choosing the global studies field major will select from an approved list of courses that have a global focus. These courses are offered on the basis of two criteria: either they address their subjects from a world or global perspective, or they address geographic areas of the world outside of the United States. The major consists of 36 credit hours, 18 of which must be selected from a set of core courses, and the other 18 from a set of elective courses. Each student will conclude the requirements of the major by completing a final project, such as an internship or research paper, which must be approved by their advisor. Students interested in pursuing this major should contact the global studies field major advisor in the department of anthropology.
