About the Global Studies Major
Gain a Deeper Understanding of the World Beyond Our Borders
If subjects such as politics, international relations, policy making, sustainability or macroeconomics interest you, you’ll appreciate Carroll University’s interdisciplinary program. We combine courses in political science, economics, philosophy, history, religious studies, environmental science and public health. And you’ll select an emphasis that adds focus in economics, geopolitical issues or world regions. In the economics track, you can study micro- and macroeconomics, trade theory and international economics. In the issues track, you can narrow your focus to topics such as international conflict and security, sustainability or global health. And in the regional track, you can focus on challenges critical to specific regions of the world, such as Africa and Asia, and learn about the tension between developed and developing nations.
A Classroom Without Boundaries
At Carroll, the world truly is your classroom: you’ll have significant opportunities to travel, with semester-, summer- and even year-long study abroad programs. You’ll complement your studies by gaining valuable insights from other cultures and viewpoints. Internship options abound, with opportunities in local government offices and agencies, as well as non-profit organizations.
Global studies majors have been successful going on to graduate school or professional schools, or entering careers in a wide range of fields, including federal, state or local government, development work, lobbying, non-profit organizations, business, journalism and politics.
