Global Studies

In an increasingly complex and interconnected global society, leaders need to think outside the box — and beyond borders. In Global Studies courses and degree programs, you’ll develop multidisciplinary perspectives on the social, political, geographic and cultural factors shaping our world. You’ll explore how similarities and differences across countries shape international relations, public policy, global health, human rights and other issues that transcend geographical boundaries. You’ll graduate with a comprehensive and nuanced understanding of the global community, and the ability to communicate and collaborate effectively with business leaders around the world.
