Global and Regional Studies Program

http://www.uvm.edu/~global/

For 45 years, UVM's Global and Regional Studies Program (previously known as Area & International Studies) has promoted regional and global awareness, international development programs, and exciting career opportunities. Global and Regional Studies is an interdisciplinary program that encompasses African Studies, Asian Studies, Canadian Studies, European Studies, Global Studies, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Middle East Studies, Russian and East European Studies, and Vermont Studies. Rather than simply providing a window through which students can observe other regions of the world, the individual GRS programs seek to engage actively with those regions and their cultural, political, economic, environmental, and social issues.  As such, graduates of our programs are prepared to enter exciting careers in government, business, law, journalism, or education.
