Graduate Program in Global Studies

The Center for Global Studies, with the assistance of an all-campus Faculty Advisory Committee, administers an interdisciplinary and inter-professional Graduate Minor in Global Studies in cooperation with 25 units across 8 colleges as well as the School of Labor and Employment Relations and the Graduate School of Library and Information Science. The Minor develops awareness and knowledge of globalization and the relevance of this process to student degree programs and career objectives. It is intended to serve three constituencies of students: those seeking to integrate their specialized skills within the broader intellectual and public policy demands of a global society; those proceeding to disciplinary or professionally-based doctoral work; and those for whom the Minor enhances their disciplinary and professional credentials in seeking public or private employment for posts relevant to global studies and policy-making.
