Global Studies

International Flags

Program Overview

Global Studies is an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural approach to studying the trends of modern global society and events. Increasing connections and interdependencies among nations, institutions and peoples around the world direct our attention to globalization as a central phenomenon of the contemporary era. 

The goal of the Global Studies program is to provide students with a strong base of knowledge, methods and practical skills for the comparative analysis of social, political, economic, environmental and cultural dimensions of globalization processes. The articulated transfer major will prepare students for further studies toward a baccalaureate degree in international/global studies.

The graduate of the AA program in global studies will:

  • Analyze important globalizing trends and their impact on the world’s cultures and the environment.
  • Explain transnational economic processes affecting global decisions and events.
  • Understand how globalization is affecting multiculturalism and the processes causing contemporary cultures to change.
  • Explore the changing nature of political organizations and nongovernmental organizations in the modern world system.
  • Analyze the interdependence among people, groups, societies, governments and nations in finding solutions to current global problems and conflicts.
  • Describe core civic values which generate socially responsible behavior at both local and global levels.

"The academy has shown me a lot more than I even suspected. It's showed me the physical demands that you need to reach and the instructors push you over the limits just so that when go to do the real thing you can achieve that. You'll push yourself and eventually reach the limits that you thought you were never capable of. You get really hands-on with all your crew and working with each of the instructors. The most valuable thing that I've learned in the academy is learning to work to your own level of excellence. Being at the college has been a great experience."
