Discover what Globalization
means for you!
Globalization is leading to greater interconnectedness through economics, technology, communication, and society. No wonder it affects all of us. Regardless of where you live, or the subject that you choose to study, globalization will involve you too. Even if you choose to remain at home, you will be a part of international activities.
The process of globalization is so vast that every academic discipline is involved and has a role to play. When you graduate, be sure you are prepared to take advantage of the opportunities unfolding before you in our fast-moving world. How? Focus your undergraduate study on global and international issues.
Western Michigan University’s Global and International Studies major offers a broad, integrative approach to the study of global and international issues, supported by the methods and theories of several disciplines, language study and regional case studies. You will build an individualized, interdisciplinary major or minor, which may include a study abroad experience, international internships, or other related experiences and opportunities.
