University Majors


University of California, Santa Barbara
Global Studies B.A.

Global Studies was established in 1998 as an interdisciplinary major within the Global and International Studies Program. The undergraduate major is distinctive in its emphasis on transnational processes and interactions that bring the world together across traditional national boundaries. It is one of the first programs in the nation to offer a degree with contemporary as well as historical globalizing trends as the organizing theme. The major provides a well-rounded liberal arts degree that will help prepare students for a variety of careers in the international arena. It will also help prepare students for further graduate study in international affairs, international business, peace and world order studies, area studies and the emergent global civil society. The major seeks to instill in the student a solid knowledge of particular cultures, while also providing training in the analysis of global trends- a way of thinking that will be consistent with the world of the 21st century.
