International & Global Studies
The International and Global Studies Program (IGS) is an interdisciplinary "Special Program in Liberal Studies" residing in UNCG's College of Arts and Sciences. IGS educates and empowers students to be engaged global citizens. Our interdisciplinary, liberal arts approach emphasizes intercultural competency, strong foreign language proficiency, and a critical understanding of the complexity and interconnectedness of world regions and populations. Study Abroad and other cross-cultural experiences are also integral components of the Program. We therefore prepare our students for a variety of public- and private-sector careers where these qualities and experiences are valued, as well as for graduate and professional studies in fields with an international or global focus.
