What are post-graduation options for Global Studies students?
Global Studies is an attractive choice for students who wish to pursue graduate study or careers in law, teaching, government, business, and international development. Second language acquisition, which the Global Studies major requires, is a key value added skill that will assist graduates in finding interesting job opportunities.
Global Studies alumni are doing great work around the world! The alumni profiles gathered here represent just a few of the many career pathways our students pursue post-graduation. In all cases, our alumni tell us that they have benefited from a combination of critical reading, research, analytical writing, and foreign language skills acquired via Global Studies. Our alumni are not only successful professionals, they are taking on global problems via creative engagement on local, national and international levels.
