Director: Mary Kate Schneider, Lecturer of Political Science

Global Studies is an interdisciplinary major based in four disciplines: economics, history, political science, and sociology. The major provides students with a social science-based framework within which to analyze issues and processes that transcend national and disciplinary boundaries. It is structured so that students move from introductory, to intermediate, to advanced levels of learning. In the process, students will come to appreciate the similarities and differences in the approaches to global issues taken by economists, historians, political scientists, and sociologists. The major consists of 15 courses, five of which simultaneously meet the University's core requirements. It is therefore possible to combine Global Studies with another major, one or two minors, or a wide range of courses in various fields. Prospective majors should consult the program director for details about the program.

Learning Outcomes
