Welcome to Global Studies at UCSB

January 2017 marked the seventeenth anniversary of the establishment of UCSB’s pioneering Global & International Studies Program. When established in early 1999, it was widely recognized as one of the nation's first interdisciplinary undergraduate majors in international studies to focus on globalization. Today, the Program is now the Department of Global Studies and has a highly successful Masters Program in Global Studies, a PhD emphasis in Global Studies, and will welcome the third cohort of PhD students this fall.
