The Department of Global Studies offers four different majors: Global Studies, French, Italian, and Comparative Literature. In addition, we have two programs that can lead to both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in five years instead of the typical six years. These “Accelerated” programs are great for students entering college with advanced language skills.
Select the program of interest below for full details on requirements, advising and more. And be sure to explore our student resources to get a taste of what life as a UWM student is like. Successful college students take advantage of all the resources available to them and graduate, not just with a degree, but with a full resume of experiences that can lead to that first post-college job or acceptance to their preferred graduate program.

The majors and minors below are directly offered by the Department of Global Studies. There are other related programs offered by other units at UWM that we think might also be appealing to students in interdisciplinary global and language studies.
Major and Minor Degrees
Accelerated Master’s Degrees
These programs can lead to both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in five years instead of six for students who are starting college at an advanced level in the language. Early entry into the program is essential so students should consult with their advisor no later than the mid-point of first year.
