Is GLST Right for Me?

Is a Global Studies Major or Minor right for me?

An equally valid question might be, “Am I right for Global Studies?” Are you drawn to all things cross-cultural: meeting people from other cultures, the sounds and tastes of exotic places, understanding international events and trends, etc.? If a professor assigned you to follow the world news as a course requirement, would you consider it an opportunity or a chore? One potential student recently explained that, due to his many interests, he was not ready to choose a specific career path. Yet as he described his interests and routines—daily doses of BBC World Service news, constant downloads of World music, love of European and World Cup soccer—it became clear that Global Studies was the academic field for him! If you like the idea of academic rigor that is set to a global beat, Global Studies may be the field for you!
