Global & International Studies - Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
The world is becoming an ever smaller place in which to live, and the interdependence of our political, cultural, and economic systems is growing by the day. Locally, the state of Indiana participates actively in the global economy. To help students understand the international system, and to prepare them for a career in an increasingly globalized world, the School of Liberal Arts offers an interdisciplinary major in international studies. Students will learn another language; specialize in a given region of the world; study abroad for the major; focus on cultural, historical, political, and economic aspects of the international system; and develop a broad awareness of the major global forces at work in the 21st-century world. They will be better equipped to understand and pursue a career or graduate study in an interdependent world. Perhaps the most innovative feature of the major is the way that students can tailor their combination of area and thematic concentrations to meet their individual academic interests and career goals.
