Courses

From global health to postcolonial literature, from the United Nations to the landfills of Delhi, India, our award-winning faculty offer students the opportunity to explore the world and investigate the political, social, cultural, economic, and environmental impacts of globalization.  Most of our classes are small and discussion based, reflecting our commitment to experiential and collaborative learning.

Global studies classes meet a variety of liberal education requirements, and some offer an honors option. Below is a list of current undergraduate course offerings:
