Global Studies

“Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
–Margaret Mead

The Global Studies major at Providence College offers students an interdisciplinary global perspective on social, economic and political issues, and prepares them to become responsible citizens, critical thinkers, and creative individuals with an ability to resist social prejudice and act in an interdependent world.

The Global Studies major draws on concepts from disciplines across the humanities, political science, and economics to allow students to learn more about how societies around the world are converging and challenging geographic and political frontiers, while at the same time celebrating individuality.

The major examines the interconnectedness among individuals, communities, governments and organizations across the world, and offers students theoretical and applied frameworks to understand the pillars of a globalized planet
