(a) no more than 4 of the 9 courses may be from the same department

(c) at least two areas of the college, CAHSS (Global Arts, Global Humanities and Global Social Sciences) must be represented.

You may hear about a Global Studies Track; when selecting among the Global electives, you may choose to focus on certain themes or tracks such as:  Culture, Place, and Identity;  Development, Health, and the Environment; Global Governance, Human Rights, and Civil Society; or you may choose to organize your own track from the course electives.

***Please note:  Because the Global Studies curriculum draws from over 15 departments and programs, it is impossible to note all the prerequisites in the Course Index.  It is the student’s responsibility to consult the UMBC catalog for the most up to date list of any prerequisites that may be required before taking particular upper-level courses.***
