Our global and international studies program responds to widely recognized changes in the social, political and economic environment in the 21st century.
You may choose a concentration in global politics and governance, global political economy, global culture or area studies. Core courses encompass international and global events, organizations, structures, and processes — as well as the global economy, global media and the increasing world-wide cultural interconnectedness. During the senior year, you will choose either a capstone seminar in your concentration or a relevant internship in an international area. In consultation with an adviser, you can develop a more directed program of study — such as a focus on development in the Third World or on globalism.
