Students come to Global Studies from many majors and colleges on campus, including engineering, ACES, general studies, political science, and more. Most students are eager to combine their interest in a language and region of the world with a particular thematic or topical focus, and, with good planning, students can double major or do a dual degree with Global Studies.


Prospective majors should make an appointment or attend walk-in advising to discuss the major before applying.

We have walk-in hours Mon-Thurs from 9:00 am-11:30 am, and on Fridays from 10:00 am-11:30 am.  There is also the option of a scheduled time. See link below.

Global Studies office located at 702 S. Wright Street, 3095 Lincoln Hall, Urbana, IL 61801


The meetings will last about an hour.
