About the Global Studies program

Penn State Berks offers the only global studies degree in the Penn State system. While emphasizing a traditional liberal arts education in literature, politics, history and foreign language study, the baccalaureate degree in global studies also promotes intercultural understanding and sensitivity to diversity — both of which are critical to navigating the 21st-century global environment. All Penn State Berks global studies majors are required to study abroad as part of their degree requirements, providing them with the unique opportunity to add real-world experience to classroom preparation.
