Division of Global Affairs

About

The Divison of Global Affairs (DGA), offering a Master's of Science degree and a Doctorate of Philosophy, is a multidisciplinary field concerned with theoretically informed, problem-oriented approaches to transitional issues and their interaction with local issues.

How You Will Learn

The program offers its ethnically and internationally diverse student population an interdisciplinary and multicultural perspective on global issues. Cutting across academic fields, the Division of Global Affairs brings together faculty from Arts and Sciences (political science, history, sociology, economics, anthropology and others), the School of Law (international law, international organizations, human rights law, comparative jurisprudence), the Business School (global political economy, international business and others), the School of Criminal Justice, the School of Nursing (in particular global health) and the School of Public Affairs and Administration. The program draws on the expertise of both academics and practitioners with a curriculum built around the seven Areas of Inquiry. Students are able to specialize their inquiries by grouping electives which lead to Certificates in one Area of Inquiry or they can spread their electives out to continue their interdisciplinary approach to learning.
