Global Studies Consortium
A network of graduate teaching programs on global studies
The Global Studies Consortium is a group of graduate programs in global studies seeking to collaborate in teaching and research. Membership in the consortium is available to any academic graduate program in the world that offers an M.A., M.Sc., M.Phil., or Ph.D. related to global/transnational studies as an interdisciplinary field of research.
The Global Studies Consortium is the outcome of a February 2007 meeting at UC Santa Barbara of graduate global studies programs from universities in Europe, East Asia, and the United States. Since then we have held formal meetings in Tokyo (2008), Leipzig (2009), Santa Barbara (2010), Shanghai (2011), Melbourne (2012), Moscow (2013), and Copenhagen (2014).
In this critical moment in the life of universities around the world, academic programs have responded to the forces of globalization in creative ways, conducing to new graduate programs in global studies. The purposes of this consortium are to promote and facilitate graduate teaching programs in global studies and to foster cooperation among them. The consortium is open to any academic program in the world that offers a graduate M.A., M.Sc., M.Phil., or Ph.D. related to global studies. It includes programs that are transnational, transcultural, global/local, world systems, or cross area, and that are hospitable to interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches within the humanities and social sciences to global studies.
The consortium will:
- share curricula and ideas about teaching programs
- facilitate cooperative teaching projects, such as distance learning, on both bilateral and multilateral levels
- develop surveys of student career paths and share information about employment and internships for students
- encourage student and faculty exchange agreements
