The Global Studies major is unique. Instead of taking all courses for the major in one area discipline, History for example, Global Studies is interdisciplinary and thus students can choose from a wide variety of courses.

Students choose one of the following academic tracks to follow:

  • Social Studies/ Humanities
  • Area Studies, ex. Africa, Latin America, etc.
  • Sciences
  • Interdisciplinary themes, ex. Indigenous peoples, Women and Development, etc.

The B.A. in Global Studies requires 33 hours in the major. Nine of those hours must be experiential learning either through a study abroad experience or an internship. A three hour Capstone course is also required.
