Courses in this program are listed under GLBL.

The UMBC Global Studies Program combines interdisciplinary coursework, foreign languages, and study abroad to facilitate broad inquiry into the ecological, economic, cultural, ideological, and political issues of our day.

Global Studies majors travel the world to study languages and culture. On campus, they study the global-local nexus and work on many community-based projects, including the cultivation of urban green spaces and the resettlement of refugee families in the Baltimore area.
