Careers

According to the American Association of Colleges and University, nearly three-fourths of employers — across a vast array of careers — are seeking employees with greater cultural competence. 


Employers seek employees with skills and experience in communication, critical thinking, teamwork, problem solving and ability to adapt to new environments and challenges. As a Global Studies major, you will be well prepared to apply your knowledge to these skill sets desired. You will be able to speak on the value of your extensive study-abroad and foreign language experience and be a strong applicant for business, non-profit, teaching and government environments.
