Global Studies is a pan-University program

comprised of six vibrant, diverse, and interwoven learning communities re-imagining undergraduate education in the 21st century. Our innovative curriculum prepares students to assess and navigate complex social, political, environmental, and economic systems and to engage with local communities, institutions, and places, in order to imagine flourishing futures for differently situated people in communities, locally and globally. Students critically examine and engage pressing global conditions while questioning the “global,” particularly in relation to knowledge production, power, and perspective. Interdisciplinary learning illuminates interconnected human and natural systems—from the local to the planetary.
