Global Studies


The Global Studies Program seeks to be a hub for global education and international activities at St. Cloud State University.

The program is home to the major and minor programs in Global Studies.  It also collaborates with the African Studies, East Asian Studies and Latin American Studies programs. 

Global Studies also hosts lectures and seminars on global issues. Please click on the Events link for specific upcoming activities. We are open to collaboration with any on or off campus entities interested in fostering global scholarship and teaching at SCSU and in the greater St. Cloud area.
