Global Studies is a new multidisciplinary major for students with an interest in issues of global significance. It equips students with a uniquely global perspective on the evolution, challenges, and opportunities entailed by the complex processes that define the contemporary world.
The Global Studies major combines core courses that emphasise a global analytic perspective with multidisciplinary offerings centred on a theme and region of the students' choice – for instance, global development in Southeast Asia. The major will provide students with the substantive knowledge and analytic tools necessary for developing innovative solutions to concrete global problems.
The Global Studies major draws on the diverse disciplines offered by FASS, including, Communications & New Media, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science and Sociology. It will prepare students to be future leaders in a variety of fields by raising their awareness of emerging and current global concerns and providing students the skills to make sense of those issues through the perspectives of different disciplines. It will also equip students with two years of intensive language training.
