• Global Studies

    Welcome to the Global Studies Department at Hamline! Global Studies provides a sound general education, grounded in an interdisciplinary approach, for students interested in the complex political, cultural, social, ecological, and economic connections and interrelationships that exist among peoples of the world.

    Through its focus on global issues as they play out in varied local settings (both domestic and international), the major seeks to overcome provincialism and to further the college’s promise of preparing informed and compassionate citizens of the world. The program provides background for graduate study, professional studies, and careers in the public and private sectors wherever there is a need for international and intercultural expertise.

    Majors can specialize in one of the following areas of concentration:

    • Global Governance
    • Global Economy and Development
    • Global Environmental Sustainability
    • Global Justice
    • Global Cultural Flows

    This can be done through their choice of Upper-Division Electives. Majors must work with their Global Studies advisor to determine which courses fall under each area of concentration.

    After terrorist attacks in Paris and other parts of the world, Hamline professors organized a multi-disciplinary panel to examine these apparently senseless acts of violence.

    The Hamline Model United Nations Team recently participated in the National Model United Nations (NMUN) Conference in New York City and was recognized for the great job they did representing Qatar, receiving the Honorable Mention award for Best Delegation.
