Global and International Studies
Description of the major
Global and International Studies is devoted to understanding human cultures and societies. This major emphasizes developing a global perspective through scholarly study, research, international communication and experience abroad. Global and International Studies majors will find opportunity in government, education, diplomatic service, international business, and not-for-profit initiatives along with further education in global studies and related disciplines. Five pathways allow students to focus on Human Rights, Culture and Identity, Global Conflict, Wealth and Inequality, or Health and Environment. The B.A. degree requires six credits of foreign-language study beyond the 12-credit proficiency level, or in a second foreign language. The B.S. degree requires six credits in technological and quantitative appropriate to the social sciences. Both degrees may include a significant engaged scholarship experience (such as undertaking an internship, job, volunteer position, or period of study) located either abroad or in a majority non-English-speaking part of the United States.
