|International & Global Studies offers students the opportunity to explore the relationships
between global problems and local experiences. As international entities have become
increasingly dependent upon one another regardless of geography and nationality, global
issues have become a major part of nearly every area of study. The International &
Global Studies Program is especially charged with advancing Illinois Wesleyan University's
educational mission of preparing students for democratic citizenship and life in a
global society. First-Year students entering in fall 2021 may choose the Asian Studies concentration or the newly designed International Relations and Global Development concentration.
