The Global Studies Program brings together courses across the curriculum that focus on, or provide means to, understanding and analyzing: global processes, systems, and phenomena, the relationship between the local and the global, and trans-border connections between people and events.

Global Studies emphasizes processes and phenomena common across borders with a particular attention to differences in the global-local connection. It offers students an opportunity to more strongly command an understanding of their place in the world and an awareness and appreciation of differences through cross-cultural competence as well as a greater ability to mediate these differences. The Global Studies program complements and strengthens Swarthmore's efforts to shape engaged citizens, not just with a local or a national conscience, but also with a global one.
