A new Global Studies undergraduate program at Boise State University will offer students another competitive avenue to find their professional footing in a rapidly globalizing world.
The global studies program in the School of Public Service will emphasize world language proficiency, global literacy, study abroad and real-world learning. The program officially will launch in fall 2017.
School of Public Service Dean Corey Cook said that the program fills an important gap.
“The mission of the School of Public Service includes a regional, national and international focus, but we’ve been missing the international piece. Developing this program is fulfilling a need we see in our programming, as well as addressing a desire from students to expand their education to a global scale. Classes will span across most of the colleges at Boise State.”
