Global Studies (B.S.)

Residential Program

Students majoring in Global Studies will be well-equipped for international engagement.  They will learn the skills necessary to thrive, build relationships, and establish healthy careers in other cultures while developing an understanding of the particular dynamics that are associated with living and working abroad. To help accomplish this goal, the B.S. in Global Studies program requires students to either double-major or minor in another area.
