Prepares students as civically engaged, culturally aware, and environmentally conscious citizens to understand and respond ethically, creatively, and analytically to the complex, interconnected issues of contemporary global systems. The program emphasizes inter-and multidisciplinary inquiry, as well as foundational skills for original research. Students may apply these skills in a range of contexts, including original investigations, as well as experiential, service, and other learning opportunities. Graduates are thus prepared to transfer to four-year B.A. or B.S. completion programs in global or international studies, as well as cognate disciplines with which global studies are associated.
