Social Sciences

Global Studies

Bachelor of Arts (BA)

Become a more engaged citizen of the world.

As a global studies major, you can focus on topics that span political science, economics, sociology, geography, and anthropology. Investigate global issues and current challenges. Use your studies to understand pressing social justice and human rights issues.

Immerse yourself in theories of social and economic change that influence individuals, societies, and institutions. Become an advocate for fair and sustainable policies that affect the environment now and in the future. By conducting research into issues you’re passionate about, you’ll develop a greater understanding of global problems and come up with potential solutions.

Your two internships in varied settings throughout Great Boston or abroad, including government, advocacy organizations, and non-governmental organizations, will put you to work addressing issues ranging from climate change to human rights to refugee crises. In this way, you can shape your career interests and develop the professional skills vital to work in the global domain.

“I broadened and deepened my understanding of the forces of globalization, particularly as they impact changing social relationships.”
Brian Diah ’14, Sociology & Global Studies
