The Global Studies program equips students with the knowledge and skills needed to respond vocationally to the principal issues confronting today's globalized world, whether in international or in multicultural/domestic settings. Graduates of the program now serve in non-governmental organization (NGO) management, urban education, church leadership, social work, community organizing, foreign service, and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). The program provides a valuable foundation for specialized work in many fields with cross-cultural or international applications.

“The experiential learning that comes from the global studies program is amazing. This major took me from Tijuana to the West Bank, and left me with not only amazing classes and internships, but indispensable practical knowledge and the confidence to face anything.”
