The global studies major at MSU is growing quickly, with over 87 currently declared Global Studies majors students. Global studies can be defined as the study of global issues and trends with the goal of developing an understanding of the increasingly global nature of every aspect of life and how this shift affects local, national and international environments. The Global Studies major at Missouri State University is inherently linked to the statewide public affairs mission in that students will be educated as globally aware citizens. In an increasingly interdependent world, students must be aware of and educated in political, social, economic and cultural aspects and, combined with necessary language skills, be able to live and work as citizens in such a world.
Thomas Uthipratuma is graduating this spring with his bachelor’s degree in global studies talks about his experiences in the program.
