The BGInS core faculty members are appointed full-time to the Arthur Kroeger College of Public Affairs, the home of the Bachelor of Global and International Studies program. They teach the GINS core courses within the degree and are the primary point of academic contact for BGInS students.
Postdoctoral Fellows and Visiting Scholars
Our Visiting Scholars are distinguished scholars and practitioners who participate in the life of the program on a short-term basis. Annually, we welcome a Visiting Professor for one term, and a Fellow-in-Residence for the full academic year.
