Our Global Studies students at College of William & Mary are deeply curious and committed to learning about the experiences of global communities from the personal to the communal and the political, and the ways in which global forces are realized in and through local contexts, and the interconnections between global regions.


The Global Studies major and minor concentrations at College of William & Mary are geared towards students with an interest in the daily lives of people who live in these international locations, and the art, music, theatre, films, food, fashion, and livelihoods they create, the traditions and beliefs they practice, the challenges they may face in their societies, and their role and context in the global family of nations.

Key Features 

  • Many Global Studies students enhance their classroom experiences by studying abroad or doing independent research. 
  • You may also find it enriching to live in a Language House. Language Houses are dormitories where students of a language live together with a native-speaking tutor. 
  • It's a great way to get extra help with your language skills, and also enjoy the camaraderie of students who share an interest in the culture of your region.
