Union College

Cluster system


International Affairs and Global Studies

The International Affairs and Global Studies cluster offers courses that stress the importance of a broad-based international perspective on economic, political, technological, scientific, and cultural issues. The cluster stresses relations between and among nations, regions, peoples, and borders (the international community) and the world as a whole (the global community). The courses in this cluster enrich students’ understanding of the concerns that affect our entire humanity at any given time and the complexity of issues that contribute and influence the diversity of our world views. Students are highly encouraged to achieve proficiency in a foreign language and to supplement the courses taken in this cluster with courses from the Modern Languages and Literatures department, courses in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, East Asian Studies, Africana Studies, Russian and Eastern European Studies, and with experiences on terms abroad, international internships and community work.
