University Majors

University of California, Riverside
Global Studies B.A.

The Global Studies program is part of an international, interdisciplinary effort to develop more accurate ways of studying and understanding how our world is changing and how we can face the challenges of the future. The Global Studies major gives students a chance to take advantage of a broad range of courses on global issues offered in the humanities, social sciences, arts and sciences. Each student acquires a background in two disciplinary traditions and a regional or topical area of study. Introductory Global Studies courses provide a general framework, while advanced seminars allow students to explore particular issues or areas from a transdisciplinary perspective. The practical and theoretical skills gained in the course of Global Studies prepare students to play an active role in many professions. They might choose careers in business or technology, public service or the creative industries. Global Studies at UCR is also excellent preparation for graduate study or for advanced study in professional schools of public policy, law, medicine, or management.
