The Global & International Studies Program, established in 1999, is one of the first interdisciplinary undergraduate majors in international studies in the country to focus on globalization. The major is popular among undergraduates and attracts approximately 900 students from all walks of life.
A Master of Arts program, launched in fall 2006, offers a two-year degree intended to help students develop an understanding of the economic, political, social, and cultural forces that are shaping global organizations. Internationally-recognized faculty teach and mentor graduate students in the growing program, which offers teaching experience and a field internship. An interdisciplinary Ph.D. emphasis in Global Studies is also available.
The Orfalea Center for Global & International Studies complements the academic programming, bringing prestigious speakers who provide public lectures and master classes, creating a dynamic intellectual and programmatic focus for global and international and area studies at UC Santa Barbara.
Support from Alumni and Friends support these endeavors and enrich our programming and student and faculty opportunities to engage in global matters at the highest level in the area. We invite you to be a part of the Program's success in educating the next generation of leaders by making a gift today.
