Prospective majors in Global Studies are encouraged to meet with the academic program manager to discuss curricular requirements and the declaration process. Declared majors and additional majors in Global Studies should meet regularly with the academic program manager to discuss curricular requirements, registration for classes, study abroad, and many other issues. The director is happy to meet with students to discuss their curricular interests, research opportunities, and thesis options.
The anthropologists, historians, and literary and cultural studies scholars who make up the core faculty draw upon a wide range of theory and methodologies but share an interest in interpreting the complex and shifting relationships among diverse groups of people - be they heads of states, migrant workers, or international film stars – embedded in specific cultures, economies, and environments.
The student cohort in Global Studies is growing. Student peers can often serve as an excellent resource to students considering and just beginning the major.
