Global Studies for Real-World Impact

The global studies program at SDSU allows students to investigate and evaluate critical global issues, hone verbal and written communication skills and develop intercultural competence essential in a global marketplace and society. The interdisciplinary global studies minor is a valuable complement to any major, offers flexibility, and introduces students to the diverse cultural, environmental, political, religious and social interactions that comprise our modern world.

Undecided or still deciding on a major and future career?

If you are uncertain about your major and have questions about career planning, you are not alone. Choosing a major or career can be a very difficult decision. The exploratory studies program may be a good fit if you are unsure of your major and career focus. Entering the university in the exploratory studies program will help you gain confidence and valuable insights on majors and minors available at SDSU and future career choices. 

In addition, FOCUS 2 Career, a self-guided assessment, education and career planning program, will help you reflect on your values, interests, personality traits and skills to provide valuable insight as you explore major and career choices. SDSU students may access FOCUS 2 Career by using their student email and password. After completing FOCUS 2 Career, you may find it helpful to discuss your results with a career coach in the Office of Career Development.
