Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies
The online Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies program is designed to develop skills and build experiences for a career or study in international relations, development, education, social science, immigration, law, or government. By applying the concepts of thinking locally and acting globally, you’ll build a framework to understand and negotiate global realities, whether economic, political, cultural, or ecological. You’ll also expand cultural understanding and discover potential markets for your unique ideas and talents. The program explores the roles that ecology, gender, race, class, religion, and ethnicity play in cultural environments and apply that understanding to everyday interactions among diverse cultures. Coursework includes building a portfolio to integrate the skills you’ll acquired and apply them to solve a real-world problem.
