UCI’s Department of Global and International Studies program prepares students for careers that require an interdisciplinary perspective on contemporary global politics, economics, cultures, and history. International studies majors acquire twenty-first-century analytical skills and knowledge that enable them to understand and contribute to shaping the rapidly evolving global community. The degree in international studies equips students for professional careers in a variety of fields such as international affairs and public policy, international business and finance, international organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and academic research and teaching. The department has a track record of placing its majors in a wide range of exciting careers and graduate programs.
In addition to their coursework, students in the Department of Global and International Studies at UCI are encouraged to engage globally in a variety of ways: involvement in student organizations, residency in the International Peace and Conflict Studies (IPACS) House, study abroad, UCDC, and internships (local and international).
