Global Studies Pathway

 The Global Studies Pathway prepares students to live and work in, and make sense of, and increasingly
 interdependent and multicultural world. Courses focus on the critical study of cultures and systems
 outside the United States, as well as on the political, economic, social, and cultural interrelationships
 within the contemporary global system.

Please note: in addition to the courses listed below, Honors and special-topics courses may be used in Pathways if they have been approved for this purpose. See here for a list of Fall 2015 course offerings applicable to Pathways.

Given the wide range of applicable courses, students should work with their advisors to choose courses that will inform their understanding of a particular issue, theme, or geographic area.

Pathways should include 4 courses in at least 3 different disciplines. If students would like to focus on a  language/culture not supported by a major or minor at the College, courses in that culture's language, art, literature, history, etc. will be accepted as separate disciplines for the purpose of the Pathways.
