Global Studies (B.A.)
The World is Ours
Issues like global warming and international migration have profound impacts on business and society. These challenges - like so many others - cannot be addressed by any one country alone. Today, a network of organizations that include government agencies, intergovernmental groups, nonprofit agencies and multinational corporations is increasingly meeting the needs of the global community. As a global studies major at Seton Hill University, you’ll study how these organizations can best interact, while honing the political, business, cultural and communication skills necessary to succeed in a career with global impact.

At Seton Hill, you choose one of the following areas of specialization for your global studies degree:

No matter which specialization you choose, you will:
