Graduates of the Global Studies in Human Sciences program are in demand in both the public and private sectors. Employment opportunities are available in the U.S. government, global justice, humanitarian aid, faith-based, philanthropic, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), as well as private business. Examples of potential career sites include the World Food Programme, Red Cross, UNICEF, Department of Defense, and domestic and foreign multinational companies (i.e., IBM, Coca Cola, CNN, Mercedes Benz). Students also will be prepared to pursue higher education degrees in global studies, international relations, law, theology and related fields.
A 12 credit hour global internship is required of all students enrolled in this major. Students may take advantage of the College of Human Sciences’ existing international agreements with Stenden University (Netherlands) which allow students to pursue an internship in the Netherlands, South Africa, Bali, Qatar and Thailand. The College of Human Sciences also has successful study abroad programs and professional contacts in the Bahamas, Fiji, Italy and Jordan that will open doors to many internship opportunities. Each student will work closely with an internship advisor to develop an individualized plan that meets career goals.
