A degree in Global Studies in the Arts and Humanities provides students with the skills to understand the cultural forms of globalization in an accelerated, interconnected, and mediated world. Our program of study is built around a global humanities approach to critical issues, such as violence and justice, borders and migration, race and gender, climate change and environmentalism. GSAH courses emphasize the crucial role of words and images in shaping how globalization is experienced. In parallel with sociological, political, and economic studies of “the global,” we train students to develop critical understandings and creative responses to globalization.
The GSAH program trains students in skills that are in high demand and open paths to a variety of careers:
- Creative, critical and analytical thinking
- Written and oral communication
- Research methods
- Intercultural understanding
- Collaborative problem solving
