Become a Cross-Cultural Ambassador

The Global Studies major 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, as students learn to comprehend the dynamics and effects of migration, economic restructuring, global inequity, environmental stress, social movements, and mission/development practice through participation in family homestays, community internships, and contextual field study.
