Global Studies

The Major in Global Studies is designed for the student intending to enter a profession in which an international focus is of particular importance.

About The Program

This major will serve as preparation for careers in such fields as international business, economics, government, law, history, sociology and work with non-governmental organizations.

The Global Studies major consists of 34-44 credit hours. These include 22-24 credits of required courses, a modern language successfully completed through the second year level (4th semester) or demonstrated equivalency, and a semester of international study.

Students select one of three major concentrations:

  1. A general Global Studies major
  2. A Global Studies major with a concentration in Global Political Economy
  3. A Global Studies major with a concentration in Global Cultures and Societies

Credits earned during study abroad for the Global Studies major may be substituted for required or elective courses at the discretion of the major’s director.
