Why Globalization Studies & International Relations?

The Institute for Globalization Studies promotes interdisciplinary perspectives on the challenges, opportunities, and contradictions related to the processes of globalization. The Institute offers a Bachelor of Arts in Globalization Studies and International Relations (a major and a minor) that combines the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and engineering to prepare future leaders in global policy-making, international service, diplomacy, and activism. Supported by a multidisciplinary advisory board, the program seeks to foster scholarly collaborations on the interactions between and within global to local scales, as well as the contradictions embedded in globalization, which often result in severe economic, political, and social inequalities among people marked by territorial borders. The Institute also pays attention to the effects that globalization processes have on the environment and how, in turn, ecological degradation is contributing to the proliferation of conflicts and the securitization of human rights.
