The Learning Environment

Undergraduate education in the Department of Transnational Studies replicates the experience of a small liberal arts college within a major research university. We welcome students seeking personal mentorship and a wide array of course options. Our interdisciplinary curriculum emphasizes mastering the research, communication and critical thinking skills crucial to succeed in an ever-evolving global society. Simultaneously, we encourage our students to refine and develop their individual interests and educational goals.
