Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program, Degree and Certificate List

Global Studies is an interdisciplinary program designed to enhance student knowledge and understanding of global processes and their implications for societies, markets, governments, cultures, and environments around the world. The program also introduces students to the study of global issues and perspectives while providing the methodological tools and techniques necessary to analyze them at multiple (local, regional, and international) levels. An understanding of the world’s social, economic, political, cultural, and natural systems and their growing interdependence will not only enable students to think globally, but prepare them to live, work, and participate in an increasingly globalized world as well. The goal of the Associate in Arts in Global Studies for Transfer Degree (AA-T in Global Studies) at Irvine Valley College is to prepare students for further work in international studies and world affairs through the study of other cultures, social, economic, and political systems, world history and geography. The program is designed to encourage students to think beyond local perspectives and to think globally. Students will learn how to relate their knowledge of a particular part of the world to the larger trends and issues that affect the international community as a whole. The Associate in Arts in Global Studies for Transfer is designed to prepare students for a seamless transfer into the CSU system to complete a baccalaureate degree in Global Studies.
