What is global studies?

Global studies critically examines transnational phenomena from multiple entry points. It is an emerging, interdisciplinary field that includes the study of politics, arts, economics, history, geography, technology, education, the environment, and more. In an increasingly more globalized world, it is critical that we engage in collaborative research and dialogue to understand trends, linkages, inequalities, and other global issues.
