The Globalization Studies focus on the geography of global changes and how the global changes come as a result of political, economic, social and environmental processes at various levels. This program emphasizes the causes of globalization and the impact of globalization on socioeconomic and political conditions and processes at the local, state and international level. This program will prepare students for a career in foreign service, international business or any career where a knowledge of the factors influencing global changes is essential.
