Bachelor of Global and International Studies (BGInS), Global Inequalities and Social Change
This program leads to a Bachelor of Global and International Studies (BGInS), rather than a Bachelor of Arts. In a sense, it is designed to do at the international level what the Specialization in Social Justice does at the community level – study and understand issues of inequality, how they come about, how they are institutionalized, what their effects are, and how they can be alleviated. Students take a required 7.5 credits in Sociology courses in addition to required courses within the Bachelor of Global and International Studies program. Courses in this program are focused on international issues of stratification, racial relations, gender and sexuality issues, international migration, human rights, political violence, and many other topics relevant to the production of inequality at the global level. Students in this program also have a language requirement and an international experience requirement that opens up opportunities for a placement in an international agency, a term of full time study at an overseas university, or a Carleton experiential learning course abroad.
