Careers Made easy

global knowledge

Our majors graduate with skills highly sought after in today’s job market. In a 2010 national survey by the Association of American Colleges and Universities, employers said they wanted a college education to emphasize knowledge of global issues (67%) and ethical decision-making (75%).

Students intern at a wide variety of institutions, from the Asia Society and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City to the American Medical Association Ethics Group in Chicago.

Professions that address a diverse population (such as medicine, education, public policy, law, marketing) and global professions (such as international relations, diplomacy, journalism, the arts and thousands of international businesses) are excellent places for our majors to apply their expertise.

My Favorite Course

“Our professor was awesome, hilarious and incredibly involved. She made things really accessible. I learned more new stuff than I had in any other class, especially a lot about Buddhism and Hinduism.”
