Global Studies in Human Sciences
For Global Studies in Human Sciences students, the world is their classroom. Global Studies focuses on topics such as hunger and food insecurity, community development and entrepreneurship, environmental sustainability, maternal and child health, education, global markets, humanitarian aid and social policy. Key to gaining real-world experience with these and other issues, and fully understanding the diverse nature of other cultures, a minimum of one study abroad experience and a semester-long internship is required for every student enrolled in the program. In addition to the valuable lessons learned abroad and in the internship, the Global Studies curriculum teaches students to use design-thinking methodologies to develop solutions to global issues. Through this course of study, students learn the realities of globalization and how local and global issues are interconnected and develop a refined skill set that will equip them to work collaboratively with communities and organizations to improve quality of life around the world.
Global Studies graduates are prepared to step into roles in large national and multinational companies, philanthropic foundations, global and local nonprofits, as well as governmental and non-governmental organizations or pursue graduate study in fields ranging from law to public health and social entrepreneurship among others. The Global Studies interdisciplinary degree, coupled with the required minor, study abroad and internship, actively prepares students to become global citizens and empowers them to pursue their passions.
