Global & International Studies Undergraduate Program
The Global & International Studies Program oversees four separate and unrelated undergraduate interdisciplinary programs. The largest of these is the Global Studies major with around 900 majors. Most of the courses in the catalogue are part of this major as are the links to Registration Information.
Global Studies was established as an interdisciplinary undergraduate major in the College of Letters and Science at UCSB in 1998. The major is one of the first in the nation to offer a program of international studies with contemporary globalizing trends as a central organizing theme, and is distinctive in its emphasis on the transnational processes and interactions that are bringing the world together across traditional national boundaries.
