The Department of Cultural, Environmental, and Global Studies prepares students for solving complex problems in a rapidly-evolving world. The Department’s majors emphasize the development of a sense of global responsibility and an understanding of the causes of social injustice. Through field research, study abroad, internships, and other opportunities, students acquire knowledge of how the world is shaped by economic, political, social, and environmental processes. Students are then able to apply this knowledge within their communities and careers in ways that reflect the mission of the Sisters of Mercy.
