Major Changes: Around the GLOBE

 

Students studying abroad and looking to pick up the International Studies (INTST) concurrent major may have to look a little harder to find it. In fact, as of the Summer 2011 term, the major no longer exists. In its place is the new Global and International Studies (GLOBE) major. The major “is intended to prepare students for lives and careers in a world that is increasingly interdependent.”  While INTST was housed in the Department of French and Francophone Studies, GLOBE is in the Comparative Literature Department. Why? Your guess is as good as mine.

The name change brought with it some changing requirements. While both majors required 12 credits of foreign language beyond the 12th credit level proficiency, GLOBE requires 6 credits of Global Perspectives classes and  6 credits of World Regions and Regional Perspectives, along with the prescribed course (CMLIT 010) and one additional course from this list. INTST required fewer classes and there were fewer distributional requirements.

Does anyone plan on adding the GLOBE major? Does anyone have the INTST major now?

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
