• Overview

    Global Studies is an interdisciplinary program focusing on contemporary challenges that by definition cannot be solved solely at the nation-state or market level. Global Studies is about social transformation and justice. Students are encouraged to not only improve existing systems but gain knowledge and experience to change them.
