The Global Skills Track requires 40 units. It is aimed at developing multicultural skills and critical thinking in cross-cultural scenarios; acquiring analytic and technical competence for identifying and making effective decisions on spatial issues; and developing geographic fluency regarding one or more regions of the world.
In addition to taking selected geography courses for completion of this track, students will be advised to take non-geography courses relevant to their topical or regional interests, in order to deepen their skills and knowledge base for successful understanding of complex global issues.
Qualified undergraduate students pursuing the Global Skills Track in geography may be eligible, beginning in their junior year, to participate in an accelerated B.A./M.A. program in geography. Interested students should contact the geography graduate program director for details.
