About

The Global Studies program of the University of Washington Bothell explores the cultural, political, and economic systems that bind people across the world. They gain the historical perspective needed to assess claims about “globalization,” and develop the critical and analytical skills necessary to understand the forces that shape our world.

Overview

The Global Studies program of the University of Washington Bothell emphasizes critical research skills, historical depth, and the use of a range of theories and frameworks.  Those may include theories of representation, political economy, feminism, nationalism, human rights, social movements, critical development studies, and postcolonialism.

Faculty who teach in GST work across a wide range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary fields, including history, anthropology, the arts, feminist studies, sociology, political economy, critical race studies, cultural and media studies, geography, environmental studies, and human rights. GST students learn to think critically about the history and practice of globalization through interpretation, empirical research, digital mapping and other forms of project-based learning.
