Global Studies

The global studies major draws from all of the university’s four undergraduate colleges to provide a well-rounded, interdisciplinary program. Students are able to choose several options to customize the program to meet their future goals. Students choose from six thematic areas (peace, conflict and human rights; international economics and development; global resources and environment; international communication and media; global studies in gender; and global health) and five options for geographic areas (Africa/Middle East, Asia, Latin America, Russia/Eastern Europe and Western Eurpoe). Global studies majors are also required to be competent in a foreign language and are strongly encouraged to study abroad during their time at UNI.

Global studies is a versatile program that can lead to a wide range of careers and advanced study.
