Global and International Studies


The field of Global and International Studies explores the behavior of governments, international institutions, multinational corporations, non-governmental organizations, and sub-national groups. Global and International Studies scholars investigate the rich complexity of relationships between the actors--political, economic, historical, geographical, and cultural--that characterize today's world.

In addition, we seek to understand the enormous tide of recent changes in the international system that have made our studies more intellectually challenging and more relevant to our daily lives than ever before. The College of Wooster's Global and International Studies Program is an Interdisciplinary Program drawing on courses, faculty, and other resources from the Economics, History, and Political Science Departments.
