The world is a complicated place and advances in technology are only adding to that complexity. Everything is interconnected! Ideas, conflicts, products, and viruses can travel from one end of the globe to the other in a matter of days.
The programs available in the Department of Global Studies help you understand the interconnected systems we are a part of, along with their challenges and opportunities. Our array of programs offer flexibility so students can focus on one or more aspects of globalization while still obtaining a strong foundational understanding of global politics, history, culture, and geography.
Language and culture-based majors include French and Italian, which allow you to develop advanced communication skills in another language while also exploring the art, literature, history, and culture of French- or Italian-speaking cultures. More interested in examining literary and artistic works across multiple regions and time periods? The Comparative Literature major may be a good choice for you. The Global Studies major offers numerous sub-specialties in business management, communication, health, security, and sustainability, allowing students to focus their studies in a particular realm of internationally-relevant fields.
