Global Studies

International Flags

Program Overview

Global Studies is an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural approach to studying the trends of modern global society and events. Increasing connections and interdependencies among nations, institutions and peoples around the world direct our attention to globalization as a central phenomenon of the contemporary era. 

The goal of the Global Studies program is to provide students with a strong base of knowledge, methods and practical skills for the comparative analysis of social, political, economic, environmental and cultural dimensions of globalization processes. The articulated transfer major will prepare students for further studies toward a baccalaureate degree in international/global studies.

The graduate of the AA program in global studies will:

  • Analyze important globalizing trends and their impact on the world’s cultures and the environment.
  • Explain transnational economic processes affecting global decisions and events.
  • Understand how globalization is affecting multiculturalism and the processes causing contemporary cultures to change.
  • Explore the changing nature of political organizations and nongovernmental organizations in the modern world system.
  • Analyze the interdependence among people, groups, societies, governments and nations in finding solutions to current global problems and conflicts.
  • Describe core civic values which generate socially responsible behavior at both local and global levels.

"Pursuing an EMS certificate at Allan Hancock College was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am learning from some of the best instructors at one of the best training complexes around. I have a great group of classmates and we work to help each other toward graduation.
