Undergraduate Programs

The Stanford Global Studies Division (SGS) supports undergraduate interdisciplinary majors, minors and honors programs. Over 150 students are currently enrolled in the Division’s undergraduate programs. The undergraduate programs explore global, regional, and domestic factors involved in contemporary politics, culture and history. Most students study overseas and acquire fluency in a second language as a part of their degree program.

Undergraduate majors are available through East Asian Studies, International Relations and Jewish Studies. Minors are available in African Studies, East Asian Studies, International Relations, Jewish Studies, Latin American Studies and Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies. Honors options are available in East Asian Studies, International Relations, and Latin American Studies. 

Many students pursue careers in government, non-governmental organizations, and business or go on to graduate school in law, business or academic Ph.D. programs.

Undergraduate research is supported through the International Relations Summer Research College where students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty on current research projects.
