Global Studies

We live in a world that is increasingly made smaller by media, travel, and technology. This shrinking of the world brings together different cultures, beliefs, and value systems on a daily basis and demands that people find ways to work and live together effectively. As a result, society requires a new type of international affairs professional. The Global Studies program strives to give students an understanding of these forces and the effects these dynamics have on citizens and systems.

Courses in this program are designed to expose students to a wide variety of belief systems and perspectives and give them skills for understanding and incorporating this information into their lives in practical ways. This program helps prepare students for transfer into four-year degree programs that focus on international business, global studies, or international affairs, or other career fields that will require students to deal with diverse people and groups such as health care and law enforcement.
