The Bachelor of Global and International Studies (BGInS) is jointly offered by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Public Affairs.
There are four components to the degree:
- A multidisciplinary core course sequence which provides all students with a common foundation in global and international studies
- 12 specializations, some defined thematically and some defined in terms of geographic regions of the world
- A language requirement intended to make students capable of engaging with another culture in a second language
- Overseas experience requirement to ensure that all students have practical experience of living and studying abroad. External admission is only to the 4 year (20 credit) Honours degree, though students in program may transfer to the 3 year (15 credit) General degree.
