New master's in global studies kicks off in fall 2014
April 24, 2013
The College of Arts and Sciences will offer a new graduate program in global studies, with the first class of students admitted in fall 2014.
The new master of arts in global studies will combine academic studies with practical global experience, making it attractive to students interested in acquiring knowledge and skills that are relevant to today's global economy.
The two-year program, which will admit about 10 students each year, will cut across geographic regions and countries. Students will choose from three thematic concentrations:
- Global Politics, Institutions and Societies: democracy, constitutional design, conflict, states and societies, human rights and citizenship.
- Global Economy: development aid and investment, global trade and finance.
- Global Migration and Labor Rights: labor rights, work in developed and developing nations, patterns of trade and investment, and the impact of migration on home economies and communities.
As student demand and teaching capacity allows, additional concentrations in such areas as global arts and culture or international social entrepreneurship might be added.
