The Global Studies and International Affairs program is an interdisciplinary major designed to prepare students for work and life in an increasingly inter-connected world. The program provides a broad-based foundation in world history, culture, politics and economics.
Students will gain in-depth understanding of international relations, conflict and change, and a heightened sensitivity to diverse cultures. The major is well-suited to students interested in a career in such rapidly growing sectors as international business, law, media, and governmental and non-governmental organizations concerned with diplomacy, policy making, public health, peace, relief operations, immigration and the environment.
