Global Perspectives

BA in Global Perspectives
Global Perspectives

Global perspectives students look at complex issues such as poverty, ecosystem degradation, child labor, and the mistreatment of women and minorities—issues that know no geographic bounds. Drawing on environmental studies, religion, the arts, sociology, anthropology, economics, political science, and history, students learn how to understand, respond to, and participate in solving complex global problems.
