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.
