    Students graduating with a primary major in Global Studies receive a Bachelor of Arts degree.  Global Studies may also be taken as an additional (e.g., second) major.  Required courses include 79-104 plus 93 additional units (including 79-275 and 79-400) and proficiency in a modern language other than English. Students may double count a maximum of two courses taken for the Global Studies major that are also being used to fulfill the requirements of other majors and programs. Students should consult with the Global Studies academic program manager (see above) about new courses and study abroad courses that may be approved for students pursuing the major in Global Studies.

    I. Required General Education Course (9 units) 

    79-104 Global Histories 9

    II. Global Studies Introductory Course (9 units)

    Students must earn a final grade of "C" or better for the course to count toward the major.

    79-275 Introduction to Global Studies 9

    III. Language Requirement

    Demonstrating intermediate to advanced level proficiency in a language other than English is a crucial component of the major in Global Studies. Normally this requirement can be satisfied by successfully completing a course conducted in the second language at the 300 level or above for French, German, Italian, or Spanish, or the fourth semester (Intermediate II) level or above for Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, or Russian. Comparable proficiency for other languages can be considered. Additional advanced cultural, historical, and literary study in the second language is strongly recommended. Courses in a language other than English may also be counted as Global Studies transnational, global, or regional courses or Global Studies electives as appropriate.

    IV. Theoretical and Topical Core Courses (18 units)

    To gain a solid foundation in the theories, methods, and analytical topics underpinning the major in Global Studies, students select 18 units (typically two classes) from the core courses listed below.  Students must earn a final grade of "C" or better in these courses to fulfill the theoretical and topical core course requirement.

    Global Studies Major — Sample Curriculum

    This sample curriculum represents a plan for completing the requirements for the Global Studies major.  Global Studies students are encouraged to spend a semester abroad and the plan below demonstrates that study abroad fits well into the curriculum.  Students may declare the Global Studies major and take appropriate courses as early as the second semester of the freshman year and as late as the junior year, and should consult frequently with the Global Studies academic program manager (see above) about their course of study in Pittsburgh and possibly abroad.

     *Spring semester of the junior year is a popular semester for study abroad.  However, Global Studies majors may instead choose to study abroad in spring of sophomore year, fall of junior year, or fall of senior year.  Students should discuss study abroad and curricular planning with the academic program manager.

     **Students are not required to complete a college honors thesis. However, many Global Studies majors choose to apply for the senior honors thesis program.  Students who do not pursue a senior honors thesis should select an elective in its place.


    Требования для иностранных студентов в США

    Каждый университет в Соединенных Штатах Америки устанавливает собственные стандарты приема, таким образом, не существует единых критериев для всех студентов, и только университет может решить, какие абитуриенты соответствуют требованиям, а какие - нет. Плата за каждую заявку составляет от $35 to $100.  

    После выбора университетов, в которые вы хотите подать документы стоит связаться с ними для подачи заявок и получения дополнительной информации о поступлении для иностранных студентов. Кроме того, при выборе программ магистратуры и докторантуры стоит обратить особое внимание на требования к поступающим. Некоторые программы требуют, чтобы вы отправили заявку на их факультет.

    Решение о зачислении принимается на основании академической успеваемости абитуриента и результатах различных тестов, таких как TOEFL, SAT или ACT (для программ бакалавриата) и GRE или GMAT (для программ магистратуры). Оно также зависит от академических результатов и мотивации.


    Требования программы

    • Common Application
    • $75 application fee*
    • Official high school transcript (please review our Academic Requirements)**
    • Secondary School Counselor Evaluation
    • Teacher Recommendation
    • Common Application essay and personal statement
    • All fine arts applicants to the Schools of Architecture, Art, Design, Drama and Music are required to arrange an audition or portfolio review.
    • Home schooled applicants should submit an academic portfolio/transcript consistent with their state guidelines and a list of all textbooks used.
    • Applicants must provide proof of meeting all requirements for an official high school diploma, by the end of May of the year of graduation, and submit an official final transcript, GED or certificate of completion from your local school district or state board of education by the end of July of the year of matriculation.
    • The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is required if your native language is not English. Carnegie Mellon requires TOEFL scores of 102 or better on the internet-based TOEFL (as of Fall 2010) or an IELTS score of 7.5 and above. Carnegie Mellon carefully reviews the sub-scores of each of these exams and considers those candidates with reading, listening, speaking and writing sub-scores of 25 or more on TOEFL and 7.5 or more on IELTS to be candidates with high levels of English proficiency. Please arrange to have these scores sent no later than January 1st. Carnegie Mellon's TOEFL code is 2074.
    • InitialView interviews are recommended for non-native English speakers but are not required. Often these interviews can measure readiness for engagement in the classroom and also showcase a student’s personality, likes and dislikes as well as the area of intended major. InitialView interviews can show English language proficiency while also corroborating the application with more details about the student.
    • If your secondary school transcript or any other admission document is written in a language other than English, it should be accompanied by an official translation and verified by a counselor or school official to be true copies of the original.
    • If you are preparing for the International Baccalaureate or the General Certificate of Education (GCE) A-level examinations, please send your expected exam results.
