The B.S. in Global Studies and Human Geography at MTSU offers preparation and the tools to succeed in an increasingly globalized world. Students study global change and the movement of people and resources in the world, focusing in particular on the spatial aspects of issues, communities, and cultures. Global Studies and Human Geography students examine, analyze, and experience firsthand the connections between different peoples and places. They gain a deep understanding of the trends and phenomena shaping the world, and they develop skills in critical thinking and complex analysis, written and verbal communications, and how to work effectively across cultures.
Two concentrations are available–Global Studies and Human Geography. A Teacher Licensure program in Human Geography is also available. A certificate in United States Culture and Education is offered as well as minors in Cultural Geography, Geography, Global Studies, and Global Action and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs).
