Rhode Island College offers a rigorous multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary curriculum in global studies. Students may major or minor in global studies, and it is an ideal complement to majors in the humanities and social sciences. In our program, you will learn about the complexity of global issues and the diversity of historical traditions and cultures. You will gain critical-thinking skills and be able to analyze global developments from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. You will examine the historical processes that produced today’s globalized world and thoroughly examine the cultural, political, social, economic, geographic and ecological interconnections.
