Global and international studies

School of Liberal Arts

The world is becoming a smaller place in which to live, and the interdependence of our political, cultural, and economic systems is growing by the day. Locally, Indiana’s economic health is increasingly tied to foreign investment and exports of agricultural, life science, or automotive products. The "Crossroads of America" is now a major international freight hub. Record numbers of immigrants from places like Mexico, South Asia, and West Africa are transforming our cultural landscape. Meanwhile, Hoosiers are serving abroad in the military, in the Peace Corps, as missionaries, or as members of the international business community. To prepare students for life and careers in an increasingly globalized world, the School of Liberal Arts offers a bachelor's degree and a minor in international studies.
