Global Studies is an interdisciplinary program of study that provides a strong foundation in the analysis of contemporary global issues. The requirements of the major enrich, complement, and coordinate departmental offerings with the goals of:

  • providing knowledge of diverse cultures: their social, economic and political interactions and impacts on the world;
  • developing skills for successfully negotiating realities of contemporary societies;
  • fostering values that respect diverse ways of living and deepen commitment to sustainability.

Global Studies COURSE IDEAS lists for SPRING 2015 available!
Students must work with advisors to determine whether courses on this list will work with your Major Plan of Study. Courses should be considered as OPTIONS. We recommend that you review the courses, narrow down your interests, and plan a schedule for yourself before seeing an advisor. Some courses may require pre-reqs or instructor permission. Every registration period is also a good time to review your DARS report to see which requirements (gen eds and requirements for the GS major or minor) you still need to do.
