Program Sub-plans
Students are required to complete one of the following sub-plans.
Cultural Production and Everyday Practice
What do literature, films, performances, artworks, music, and popular culture tell us about the world, and what do they do in the world to entertain, engage, inform, or deceive? How do new technologies and digital media transform previous forms of collective belonging and political expression? How are our sensibilities, values, and understandings of the world shaped by the global movement of people, material things, and ideas? Students selecting this track will explore these and other questions by integrating humanities and social science perspectives on such phenomena as globalization, transnationalism, modernity, colonialism, religious affiliations, nations and nationalism, gender and sexual identities, and perceptions of environment and place. They will be taught to think creatively and critically about the production and circulation of cultural forms at local, national, regional and transnational scales. This will serve as a basis for understanding not only contemporary forms of power and inequality, but also the aspirations, self-understandings and struggles of human communities in an increasingly interconnected world.
Students are required to complete two sub-plans for the major: one thematic concentration and one regional concentration. Courses must be chosen in consultation with a Global Studies advisor. The following course lists are not exhaustive. Students should consult the list of courses approved by the Global Studies advisor each semester to view additional options. Please note that extra Breadth courses for a specific region or theme may count toward the Electives requirement for the same specific region or theme. Cultural Production and Everyday Practice is a thematic concentration. It must be paired with a regional concentration of your choice.

Political Economy and Environmental Change
What are the contemporary economic, political, ideological, and cultural forces shaping the ever-changing global economy? How do transnational corporations and institutions influence the rules of the game, and with what consequences for inequality within and beyond the borders of the United States? What do we produce and where, how is global finance transforming the way the world works, and what are the dynamics of consumption, distribution, resource use and waste underlying 21st century capitalism? Is this system socially and environmentally sustainable? Students in this track will examine these questions from a "political economy" and "political ecology" perspective. They will also explore how grassroots and transnational social movements are attempting to articulate new visions of sustainable development, nature, climate change, and justice.

Human Rights and Justice
What are human rights? How are they defined, critiqued, enacted, and achieved? This theme allows students to rethink categories such as “rights,” “equality,” and “justice”; to examine the role of law, memory, narrative, and media in representing mass violence; and to examine mechanisms promoting conflict resolution and cooperation in a global context. Courses address interstate relations as well as the ways in which such relations have been altered by the increasing role of non-governmental organizations, supranational organizations, and institutions of global governance. Global studies majors completing this track are encouraged to think about the ways in which governance, peace, and justice are influenced by both local and global social, political, and cultural processes.
Students are required to complete two sub-plans for the major: one thematic concentration and one regional concentration. Courses must be chosen in consultation with a Global Studies advisor. The following course lists are not exhaustive. Students should consult the list of courses approved by the Global Studies advisor each semester to view additional options. Please note that extra Breadth courses for a specific region or theme may count toward the Electives requirement for the same specific region or theme.

Global Health and Mobile Populations
Global pandemics, impacts of climate change, unprecedented movements of people and pathogens, civil unrest and displaced populations: it is difficult to avoid hearing about the seeming conflagration of forces and factors today that are causing widespread fear, questioning the integrity of national borders, the effectiveness of global governing agencies, the progress of science, and our collective capacity for economic and environmental change. Through the courses offered in this track, students should get a good sense of the imprint of history and of current geopolitical and economic policies conditioning patterns of disease and mobility, be able to critically analyze received understandings and representations of migrations and disease outbreaks, and the many factors shaping responses to these phenomena.

'Ways of Knowing' is a course for Global Studies students seeking to challenge themselves with fundamental questions about how we know and understand our interconnected world. How are knowledge--and ignorance--"made"? How do we construct understandings from what we know? How are knowing and understanding different? How do different processes of research produce different forms of knowledge? What is ignorance, and how is it too "constructed"? How do we know and understand across cultures and geographies in ways that are both illuminating and ethical? Students will become more savvy, skilled, and thoughtful consumers and producers of knowledge, and more attuned to the needs for greater understanding in both personal and public realms. Topics include the difference between public discourse and scholarship; the relationship between knowledge and science; the activity of reading and its relationship to knowledge, and the history of knowledge institutions. Global Studies students will map their own interests--and their interdisciplinary major--into the complicated system of disciplines that organizes the university and provide concrete ways of approaching senior projects.

POL 3489W - Citizens, Consumers, and Corporations (CIV, WI)
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]

Corporations are among the most powerful actors in the global political economy. They employ millions of people, produce a variety of goods, and have massive effects on the ecological and social environments in which they do business. How do ordinary people act in order to hold corporations accountable for the effects that their activities have on communities and individuals? This course focuses on two ways that people have mobilized to counter corporate power--as citizens and as consumers. When people mobilize as citizens, they put pressure on corporations through the political system--e.g. through mass protests, lobbying politicians, and pursuing claims through the courts. When people mobilize as consumers, they use the power of their purchasing decisions to encourage corporations to change their behavior. We will explore these different modes of action through an examination of corporate social responsibility/sweatshops, the industrial food system in the US, and the privatization of life (e.g. genes), water, and war.

Do free markets, the legacies of colonialism, state power, culture, or geography offer the most persuasive account of current patterns of global inequality? The course also examines what we mean by "development" and exposes students to cutting-edge debates in contemporary development studies. By the end of the course, students will have a better understanding of the causes of and possible solutions to global inequality.
POL 3489W - Citizens, Consumers, and Corporations (CIV, WI)
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]

Corporations are among the most powerful actors in the global political economy. They employ millions of people, produce a variety of goods, and have massive effects on the ecological and social environments in which they do business. How do ordinary people act in order to hold corporations accountable for the effects that their activities have on communities and individuals? This course focuses on two ways that people have mobilized to counter corporate power--as citizens and as consumers. When people mobilize as citizens, they put pressure on corporations through the political system--e.g. through mass protests, lobbying politicians, and pursuing claims through the courts. When people mobilize as consumers, they use the power of their purchasing decisions to encourage corporations to change their behavior. We will explore these different modes of action through an examination of corporate social responsibility/sweatshops, the industrial food system in the US, and the privatization of life (e.g. genes), water, and war.

POL 4771 - Race and Politics in America: Making Sense of Racial Attitudes in the United States (DSJ)
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Typically offered: Periodic Fall
Race continues to be one of the defining fault lines in American politics. Most obviously, the existence of racial inequality has enormous consequences for any given individual's social and economic standing. However, it also has had an enormous impact on the pattern of attitudes and beliefs which have served as the backdrop for many of society's most pressing political debates and conflicts. The purpose of this course is to provide students with an introduction to how political scientists have studied racial attitudes and the larger problem of inter-ethnic conflict in American society. We will begin with a look at the historical circumstances which have given rise to the major research questions in the area. From there, we'll look at the major research perspectives in the area, and see how well they actually explain public opinion on matters of race. In doing so, we'll also get a look at some of the major controversies in this area of study, particularly the issues of whether the "old-fashioned racism" of the pre-civil-rights era has been replaced by new forms of racism; and the degree to which debates over policy matters with no apparent link to race - such as crime and social welfare - may actually have a lot to do with racial attitudes. Finally, we will conclude by taking an informed look at racial attitudes in recent American history, focusing on how racial attitudes and their political consequences of have changed - and not changed - over the course of the Obama presidency and the tumultuous 2016 election.
