The Global Studies program prepares students for life and a career in our globalized, interdependent world. It is an undeniable fact that we live in a globalized world, whether that is in the clothes we buy, the food we eat, the technology that we engage, the jobs that we seek or the conflicts in which we see our country embroiled. In this multi-disciplinary program, students will have the opportunity to study different cultures, societies and global issues, and to reflect on the role that they play in a globalized community.
