CSU Channel Islands offers several Global Studies programs for undergraduates.

We offer: 


BA in Global Studies

By studying Global Studies at CSUCI, you’ll integrate global coursework with international experience to develop your knowledge of the world and the major contemporary issues confronting humanity. Students immerse themselves in foreign cultures with study abroad and knowledge of a foreign language; learn the various implications of globalization; examine the issues facing modern-world societies across multiple perspectives, disciplines, cultures and nations; and participate as global citizens and leaders.


Minor in Global Studies

By pairing Global Studies with a major in a different field, students will better prepare themselves for the 21st century workplace. You'll still study abroad and learn a foreign language. With both the coursework and these global experiences, you will develop the highly sought skill of intercultural competence. Combined with your major in another field, you will be well-equipped for work as a biologist in California or an accountant in Morocco.
