About Global Studies

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.

In the program, students can pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in Global Studies or a minor in Global Studies. Global Studies offers students a variety of options for focus areas, including (but not limited to) a regional focus (Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East) or a transnational focus (Development and Globalization, Peace/Conflict/HumanRights, Global Health).
