Students who major in global studies study abroad for at least one semester and should demonstrate intermediate proficiency in a foreign language. To earn the bachelor’s degree, students take a minimum of 13 courses (37 credits).
- Introduction to Global Studies
- Modern Global History
- Comparative Politics
- Environmental Justice
- Cross-Cultural Psychology
- Anthropology: Interpreting Cultural Differences
- Global Studies Capstone I and II
In addition to the foundational courses, students take at least four courses in one of four concentrations: sociocultural identities, international development, a geographic regional focus or one of the five Mercy critical concerns (immigration, the environment, non-violence, women and anti-racism). Concentrations should be chosen by the end of the sophomore year and before selection of a study abroad program.
