SUMMARY

Studying Global Studies is not only a valuable choice, but often a necessary first step for undergrads intending to pursue a career as a media coordinator, a global communications specialist, or a contracts specialist. In fact, global studies is fairly popular ranking as the 73rd most popular major. In the last year, there were 6,494 global studies degrees conferred. In-state tuition for global studies at private schools is, on average, 4.2 times more pricey than their public rivals.

There are 333 institutions which offer global studies. 333 colleges is on par with other degrees offered in the United States. If you are looking to immerse yourself with other global studies majors, consider looking at colleges in California which have more students admitted to global studies than any other state. less precisely, the top region to get a degree in global studies is in the Far West region with University of California-Irvine, University of California-San Diego, and University of California-Santa Barbara best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the top conference to major in global studies is the Pacific-12 Conference with Arizona State University-Tempe, University of Colorado Boulder, and University of Oregon representing the conference. From our comprehensive list of the best colleges, our belief is that the best school for global studies is University of Pennsylvania.

The 'best' school does not mean it is the best school for every student. There can be tons more factors to weigh when selecting institution. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely refashion your thoughts on where to go to school. Here at Authority, we've examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which global studies university is home to the top college campus, the answer is University of California-Los Angeles. If you are very interested in which school boasts the best campus, then we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more so we can compare every major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life and, from that list, our selection for the university with the best student life for global studies is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Curious why? Continue scrolling to learn more about our top selections. Many of our conclusions just might surprise you.

If price is a major influence in your decisions, you might consider avoiding University of Southern California. University of Southern California is the most expensive college for global studies, at least for out of state students. We have an entire list of the most expensive colleges that might put the price tag at University of Southern California into perspective. For more context, you might care to know that global studies is the 63rd most expensive program in the nation, with an average associated cost of $45,800. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for global studies in the nation is Maine with tuition and fees at the main college, Colby College, of $54,870. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the country for global studies is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Colby College with a cost of $54,870, Boston College with a cost of $56,780, and Brandeis University with a cost of $55,340.

Our cheapest region for global studies is the Southeast region which is represented by Western Carolina University with a cost of $5,000, College of Charleston with a cost of $70, and American Public University System with a cost of $6,804. More optimistically, the most affordable school for global studies is California State University Maritime Academy. Our full list of the most affordable colleges can be found here.

In-state learners can expect to pay around $10,100 for a degree in global studies. The cost inflates significantly to an average of $25,400 for the out-of-state public-school student. Our pick for the school with the best value for global studies: University of Pennsylvania. On this page you can find our comprehensive list about the schools we see as being the best value in general. Bear in mind, this discussion is predicated on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for global studies majors differ widely, but two-years after completing the major graduates will often earn in the neighborhood of $43,000. While there can be much variation in salary; top positions can rake in up to $78,700. Straight out of college, the minimum earning positions within the global studies field make $22,900, which isn't that bad. The highest earning grads for global studies come from University of Pennsylvania and if you want to find the universities with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The prevailing diversity of global studies stands very high, coming within the 93rd percentile of all majors. The college with the highest composite diversity for global studies is University of Pennsylvania and here you can find our general list of the universities with the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Global Studies major is only in the 63rd percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is actually greater, ranking in the 91st percentile. White collegians compose the largest proportion at 47% of students majoring in global studies. Additionally, 65% of undergrads seeking a global studies major are women.

The median rating for global studies' professors is 4.1 stars, a score that is 2% better than the median across every major; this is a good score. If you are searching for the most popular global studies instructor in the nation, take a look at Chris Saladino from Virginia Commonwealth University. It may come as a surprise, but the highest rated instructors for global studies by student come from New York University. As we consider data beyond just rankings we find that the university possessing the overall best professors for global studies is University of Pennsylvania. You can find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as some of the finest professors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for global studies is University of Pennsylvania. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we have a detailed page of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you understand that approaching academics from context mainly informed by superlatives could cause issues. We at Authority hope you explore our more nuanced pages on different colleges and explore some of Authority's helpful background pages on useful details to consider as you progress with your school search.
