Go beyond your boundaries and explore unknown cultures and lands, whether they're in your own backyard or on the other side of the planet. Global studies is more than merely traveling abroad; it is engaging the world around you to gain an appreciation for our differences while understanding our interdependence.
We strongly encourage you to pursue opportunities to learn about other cultures inside and outside the classroom, domestically and abroad.
