Formerly known as international studies, Global Studies is an interdisciplinary major at the University of Oregon. What this means is that students can tailor majors to their own specific interests. 


Global Studies provides an excellent general education for students interested in the complex interrelationships (political, economic, social, and cultural) of our interdependent modern world. 

The Global Studies program from the University of Oregon offers students tools to make sense of a fast-changing global arena; it ensures the practical application of their research; and it immerses them in the language, history, and culture of a major world region.
