About Global Studies Research

The University of Pittsburgh's Global Studies Center (GSC) was established in 2001 as an interdisciplinary and cross cultural center by the University Center for International Studies and the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA). The Center, which is one of 11 nationally recognized International Studies Centers, offers certificate programs in 6 areas of concentration.

The cross cultural concentrations and themes are: 1 - Changing Identities;  2 - Communication, Technology and Society, 3 - Conflict and Conflict Resolution; 4 - Global Economy and Global Governance;  5 - Global Health;  and 6 - Sustainable Development.  All are designed to promote a more global understanding of the causes and consequences arising from the process of globalization. 

Global Studies' interdisciplinary collection of print and electronic material  includes nearly all areas of the social sciences (history, economics, anthropology, sociology, political science, international affairs, government and public affairs), and humanities (arts, music, and literature).  It focuses most heavily on the global, political, economic, social and cultural aspects of the six themes.
