  • Graduates from Globalization Studies modules are well equipped to continue their studies in interdisciplinary or discipline specific graduate programs which stress independent research into the impacts of social, political and economic phenomena at a human scale. Students with an interest in pursuing careers defined by their interests in social justice work, advocacy, policy analysis and community development are also well prepared by Globalization Studies degrees.

    The objective of Global Development Studies is to provide students with sufficient critical awareness of the conditions underlying contemporary global inequalities so that they themselves may understand best how to become positive agents of global change.

They are also fully prepared for further study in graduate degree programs in development studies, along with graduate study across the social sciences.

    An education in Global Culture Studies prepares students particularly well for graduate study in interdisciplinary Master's (MA) programs concerning social, political, and cultural theory.
