A bachelor of arts degree consisting of 43 credit hours distributed as follows:
Choose 15 credits from the following courses:
Students may take one Internship (PSCI-480X) toward the requirements for the major and apply the credits to either global processes or comparative and regional studies.
One international travel course (such as ART-307X) or cultural exploration course (such as COMM-333X, ENG-240, FCS-250, FREN-305X, SOC-363 or SOC-365, or SPAN-306 or SPAN-308X) may be used toward the comparative and regional studies requirement.
Students may substitute SOC-322 for PSCI-250.
Students may not double major in political science and global studies. Political science majors may minor in global studies, but the 15 credits from non-core areas must be taken in disciplines other than political science
Students pursuing a global studies major are strongly encouraged to study abroad, to explore a minor relevant to their area of interest (world languages and cultures, economics, business, philosophy and religion, etc.), and to participate in an internship. Relevant internships through PSCI-480X earn credit toward the major.
