What is Global Studies at ACU?
Global Studies (GLST), is an emerging field of study with nearly endless possibilities for the future. As an academic field, Global Studies explores the interconnectedness of a world that is increasingly shaped by processes of globalization, offering multiple perspectives on the contemporary world and its complexities. The breadth of study – in political science, history, culture studies, language, economics, and environmental studies – prepares students with knowledge and skills essential for responsible citizenship, service, and productive work in the global community.
Unlike certain professional degrees that qualify the individual for one specific career, the degree in Global Studies gives the individual significant room for maneuvering when it comes to choosing a career. From international business to journalism to economic development, the sky is the limit for the graduate who can demonstrate sophisticated academic knowledge, cross-cultural experience, internship experience, and language skills.
