Description:

The Global Studies major focuses on the study of globalization and global cultures and emphasizes the analysis and/or discovery of interconnected and interdependent patterns in the human experience today. The major is designed to provide a lower division foundation for students who seek to transfer to upper division programs in Global Studies or International Relations. Additionally, the major provides the foundation for lifelong learning.

Program Student Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this program, the student will be able to:

  1. Compare and contrast a variety of global cultures and/or geographic regions, and describe their own culture or region with greater awareness;
  2. explain and provide examples of global economic interconnections and interdependencies;
  3. compare and contrast different political systems in a global context;
  4. analyze interrelationships, interconnections, and influences in the history or art of different cultures, peoples, or nations;
  5. utilize the tools and approaches of several different disciplines to analyze global issues, connections, and interdependencies;
  6. demonstrate ability to use research tools to locate and evaluate information on global issues; and
  7. demonstrate basic oral and written proficiency in one modern language other than English.

It is important that students who are completing an Associate Degree and desire to transfer to a four-year institution meet with a counselor to plan their lower division coursework. While many majors at SRJC are intended to align with lower division major preparation required by California public universities, specific lower-division major requirements vary among individual campuses. See a counselor, visit the Transfer Center, and check Guides For Transfer in Specific Majors, and ASSIST to review transfer preparation guides for specific schools and majors.
