Community is invited to Global Studies presentation,
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa students in
the Global Studies Program (GSP) will present their honors theses during a
free, public event Sunday, April 30 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the International
Center Lounge on the UI campus. Following the presentations will be a potluck
dinner with a grill for barbecuing. Drinks will be provided.
GSP offers undergraduates an opportunity for interdisciplinary
study of the global system. The program examines peace, security, development,
health, human resources, environment, natural resources, human rights, and
social justice. Undergraduates may major in global studies, or complement
their work in another field by pursuing a global studies certificate. There
are currently an estimated 50 UI students in the program.
