Global Studies C.A.

Department: Global Culture/Global Studies

Total Credit Hours: 30 credits

This program is designed to enable students to develop a fundamental level of international and intercultural competence, and to prepare them to assume their role in an increasingly complex, interconnected and interdependent world. Additionally, the program will reinforce the four State-Level Skill Area Goals and the four State-Level Knowledge Area Goals of the new General Education structure using an explicit global focus.

Job prospects of a global studies certificate are exceptionally varied.

Students who earn a certificate in global studies can go on to have successful careers in international business, academics, advocacy, politics, government, publishing, the arts, research and more.
