Global & Area Studies

Your Gateway to the World


Studying within the Global & Area Studies Program and earning your degree in International Studies is a great way to acclimate yourself with the various issues going on around the world. If you like studying culture and society, governments, the environment, or conflict there are classes you will find interesting. Not only is there rigorous coursework to complete, Global & Area Studies students also learn a foreign language, participate in cultural activities outside of the classroom, and many study or work abroad. All of these aspects prepare you for a career anywhere in the world. Students graduate with knowledge of history, politics, economics, the environment and social and cultural understanding because of the interdisciplinary nature of the program. Use the links on the right to discover more about our major, and we look forward to hearing from you.
