3rd Years (Class of 2017): Students will graduate with majors in either Global Studies or International Studies. This will be the last class of International Studies majors- afterwards, all students will matriculate as Global Studies majors.

2nd Years (Class of 2018): The International Studies program will transition into the Global Studies program after the conclusion of Spring 2017. Therefore, students in the Class of 2018 onwards will only be able to major in Global Studies.

Notable Changes between International and Global Studies include:
