About the Program
Global Studies—an Interdisciplinary Approach to our Interconnectedness
Global Studies is an interdisciplinary major that helps students understand critical concepts—such as the value of international infrastructure and global citizenship, as well as the idea that what is a seemingly inconsequential action, like buying a T-shirt, actually has a domino effect that creates many ripples across continents.

Global Studies at Foothill College introduced me to several different academic disciplines. The opportunities it provided also helped me to discover new life and career pathways that I hadn't considered before. Anthropology, political science, economics, art history, communications, and foreign language are only some of the areas I was fortunate enough to have amazing experiences in!
As I continue down my career path in international policy research and eventually international law, I will always remain thankful to Foothill's Global Studies department for giving me the chance to succeed and grow, especially as a person with an even wider perspective of the situations we all face today. I would absolutely recommend the major to anyone. Broaden your horizons!
