Director of Undergraduate Studies Welcome

Jennie Burnet

Welcome to the Global Studies Institute!

If you want to study the world and tackle pressing global issues, you have come to the right place. We are so excited to have students joining our program.

The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) with a concentration in Global Studies allows you to develop a deep regional concentration, research & analytical skills, and signature experiences that reflect your unique interests and goals in a highly individualized way. As a Global Studies major, you will be exposed to a diverse range of perspectives that will truly challenge you and expand your horizons, while preparing you for a wide range of careers and advanced study.

Starting in Fall 2016, we plan to have regular events targeting students interested in Global Studies. Watch your email and our website for announcements.

If you are interested in learning more about our degree program, I encourage you to read more about it here. If you are already enrolled in the B.I.S. in Global Studies (or the B.I.S. in International Studies) and you need advising, please use Calendly or email me to make an appointment..
