“Find out how you can make a difference in the world right here in Seattle. No passport required.”
– Nada Elia, Core Faculty Member
If you have an interest in contemporary world issues, the interdisciplinary Global Studies concentration is for you. The focus is on the late 20th century and opening decade of the 21st century — that is, the “Age of Globalization” that emerged in the wake of imperialism, post-colonialism, and the Cold War.
You gain a solid grounding in ideologies, problems, and solutions to transnational phenomena such as trade, debt, outsourcing, environmental concerns, and global terror.
Graduates of this concentration have earned jobs in foreign language interpretation, public relations, advocacy work, English as a Second Language (ESL) instructor, international business, fundraising, teaching, and received organizational and military rank promotions.
