What is Global Studies C.A.?

This program is designed to enable students to develop a fundamental level of international and intercultural competence, and to prepare them to assume their role in an increasingly complex, interconnected and interdependent world. Additionally, the program will reinforce the four State-Level Skill Area Goals and the four State-Level Knowledge Area Goals of the new General Education structure using an explicit global focus.

Eighty-seven percent of U.S. companies agree that international expansion is needed for long-term growth.
