North Central College - Naperville, IL

Global Studies

The global studies major at North Central College will prepare you to serve in the public and private sectors at either the national or international level and help you understand why boundaries -- both physical and intellectual -- must be crossed.

Participation in a globalized world demands an understanding of the issues that confront all of the earth’s citizens. To this end, we bring together courses from a variety of areas, such as political science, business, economics, history, religion, philosophy and culture, so that you can develop a broader understanding of global diversity, the problems we collectively face, and the possible solutions from which we can choose.

Choose from a specialization in East Asia, Europe, developing states, international business or international relations. Study a foreign language, participate in one of our many study abroad programs, and even represent a foreign country in regional and national Model United Nations simulation programs.
