The Global Studies program at Appalachian State University is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary academic program devoted to the understanding of historical, social, political, geographic, cultural, and artistic dimensions of international, transnational, and global processes. The program has been in existence since 2008; we have over 130 majors and we have almost 25 minors. Take a look at student and faculty activities in the 2011 newsletter! Never fear, the 2013 update is coming soon!
What does Global Studies involve? It is a degree program that includes a Bachelor of Arts degree in Global Studies as well as a minor in Global Studies. In this program, students and faculty have a variety of options for focus areas, including (but not limited to):East Asian Studies, South Asian, Middle Eastern Studies, Latin American Studies, Francophone Studies, German Studies, Third World Studies, Global Arts, Development and Globalization, Postcolonial and Diaspora Studies.
The Global Studies program is one of the 3 degree programs housed in the new Department of Cultural, Gender and Global Studies (College of Arts and Sciences). We have, however, over 60 Global Studies faculty members in the program, drawn from 12 different departments across the university. We have representation from the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Fine and Applied Arts, The Walker College of Business, and the Hayes School of Music.
