Cultural, Environmental and Global Studies

The Department of Cultural, Environmental and Global Studies prepares students for solving complex problems in a rapidly-evolving world. Our programs emphasize the development of a sense of global responsibility and an understanding of the causes of social injustice. Through field research, study abroad, internships and other opportunities, our students learn how the world is shaped by economic, political, social and environmental processes. Students are then able to apply this knowledge within their communities and careers in ways that reflect the mission of the University and the Sisters of Mercy.
