Message from the Director

Welcome to the Center for Global and International Studies! It gives me great pleasure to invite you to browse our information regarding the exciting curricular offerings and stimulating co-curricular opportunities available at Hood College.

With a world in constant flux, Hood College offers a robust number of majors and minors that prepare students for careers and graduate studies, broadly conceptualized, in international affairs. In addition to a major in Global Studies, we are proud to offer majors in Middle Eastern Studies, Latin American Studies, and languages, such as Spanish, French, and German. We also offer interesting minors and concentrations, such as international economics and finance.

Our unique location near Washington D.C. and Baltimore affords students opportunities to engage in meaningful internship experiences. By working closely with the Career Services Center and our extensive Alumni network, we help students identify placements in the arenas of International Economics, Foreign Policy, and Cultural and Language Studies. Many of our students also take advantage of study abroad programs, which include exciting coursework and cultural excursions in countries such as Australia, Argentina, France, Spain, China, and the United Kingdom.

In addition, we coordinate Global Studies guest speakers to address the campus community on topics including global politics, climate change, global food security, and women’s economic and political empowerment. One of our goals is to increase awareness regarding global issues on campus and in the greater Frederick community.

Please contact me at or 301-696-3699 if you would like to learn more about the Center and the opportunities we offer.
