We are pleased that you are interested in Global Studies at Appalachian. If you are a student making an initial inquiry, please include the following information in your email so that we can assist you better: 

1. Focus Area: What kind of focus area are you interested in? You don't have to decide right now, but we can advise you best if we have an idea of what area(s) you might like to pursue! Can you narrow your choice down to 2-3?

2. Language: What language are you studying or what language are you interested in studying? Global Studies majors have a foreign language requirement. If you are currently in (or have had) a language course, what level is that course (e.g. beginning, intermediate)?

3. Study abroad: Have you thought about where you might like to study abroad? Global Studies majors study abroad for at least a semester to fulfill their degree requirements. It is never too early to start thinking about it!
