Global Studies

NCCU offers a multi-disciplinary concentration in Global Studies. The concentration consists of 12-15 hours of coursework, determined in consultation with the Global Studies advisor. Students may choose to follow one of five tracks: Population, Migration, and Identity; Environment and Sustainable Development; Governance, Peace and Justice; International Political Economy; and Culture, Power, Place. The tracks allow students to explore complex global issues from a variety of perspectives-from the sciences to the humanities-while stressing the interconnectedness of the world and the need to search for innovative solutions.

The one required course of the Global Studies Program, Global Studies 1000 (GLST 1000), the Global Experience introduces students to the theoretical aspects of globalization-examining its historical, political, cultural, and economic underpinnings. Equally importantly, it addresses practical aspects by using case studies to examine how globalization affects the world around them.

The Global Studies Program also organizes extra-curricular events on and off campus and has potential internship opportunities available for qualified students. If you are interested in this dynamic program, please visit the office of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Students must have completed two semesters of undergraduate studies and maintained a minimum of 2.2 GPA. Students who wish to be a part of this program complete an application and, if admitted, are assigned an advisor by the Director of Global Studies (Dr. Claudia Becker, cbecker@nccu.edu or 919-530-7201).
