School of Interdisciplinary Studies Global Studies

Global Studies

The Global Studies Program provides Purdue undergraduates with a flexible yet rigorous interdisciplinary education in key issues confronting today's globalized world. Global Studies students at Purdue are ready for the world. Our students are not simply given the tools to understand the processes of globalization and their consequences, they are also encouraged and empowered to intervene in those processes and shape their world.

As a core team of faculty from various disciplinary backgrounds in the College of Liberal Arts, we are proud to say that we are in the business of training the next generation of global leaders in education, business, government, and social justice work.
