Global Studies programme at Hofstra University will provide you with the theoretical and practical tools to critically analyze the ongoing processes of economic, political and cultural change that have collectively become known as "globalization."


Program Details

At Hofstra, learning is a constant evolution, as you uncover knowledge in your classes and about yourself. And in the end, you’ll realize the person you were always meant to become.

As you move along in your studies, you may take courses in such diverse fields as geography, international business, political science, urban and regional studies, sustainability, economics, health, history - even food culture - and unravel their complex, changing relationships and the roles they play in communities locally, regionally, and around the world.

The Global Studies Program at Hofstra University is housed in the Department of Global Studies and Geography.

Global Studies majors are adventurous and politically engaged, with wide-ranging interests that can't be captured by a single subject or discipline. They want to understand how nations and peoples interact and influence cultural, political and social structures.

  • World Regional Geography
