International & Global Studies Alumni
International and Global Studies majors graduate with a diverse skill set that enables them to successfully pursue a wide range of career paths including teaching, business, banking, government and foreign service, advertising, the non-profit sector, microfinance, social development, and policy. Additionally, our majors are very successful at winning scholarships, fellowships and other sorts of awards after college including the Watson Fellowship, Fulbright scholarships, and postings with World Teach.
We recently contacted all of our past IGS majors and were pleased when many of them answered our call for information about their postgraduate career pursuits. Several of them included comments about the usefulness of the major in their current lives. Experience studying abroad, learning a foreign language, and gaining knowledge about the processes of interconnection and interdependence that increasingly characterize our world, all strongly influenced their options after college.
