Global Studies Security and Justice

Allowing students to explore both empirical and ethical aspects of conflict in the world today.

 

Overview

 

GSSJ majors study security and conflict issues (e.g., war, genocide, terrorism, and cybersecurity), “orders and borders” issues (e.g., international law, international organizations, migration, and human trafficking) and other international human rights issues (e.g., detention, surveillance, and policing).

We prioritize one-on-one academic and non-academic advising in order to prepare students passionate about security and justice issues to work on those issues beyond UVa.
