College of Liberal Arts
This interdisciplinary program enhances students’ understanding of issues resulting from an increasingly interdependent world and giving students an opportunity to broaden their horizons beyond their chosen major and achieve a more integrated vision of contemporary global problems, alternative concepts of global society, and strategies for moving toward a more just and humane world order.
The program’s flexibility allows students, in consultation with their advisor, to select an array of courses and co-curricular experiences that best complement their majors as well as their goals for their careers and/or postbaccalaureate education.
Global studies students are encouraged to pursue opportunities for study abroad and foreign language acquisition as part of their minor requirements. Working with their advisor and the UAF Office of International Programs and Initiatives, global studies students may discover ways to build on their UAF course work and satisfy a significant portion of their global studies minor requirements at a foreign college or university.
