"I have nothing but positive things to say about the global studies program at The University of Toledo. In a world that is so interconnected, it is extremely vital to have an undergraduate degree that allows students to expand their knowledge on world affairs, and this program provides just that opportunity. Furthermore, the structure of the global studies major allowed me to focus my studies on two areas that really interested me. I chose to regionally focus on Europe and Women’s and Gender Studies and, as a result, my course load was filled with classes that catered to my interests. The professors have been extremely helpful and knowledgeable."
