Note from the Director of Global Studies
Professor Nicole Freiner: Director of Global Studies and Associate Professor of Political Science at Bryant University.
Welcome to Global Studies at Bryant University!
We are a dynamic program within the College of Arts and Sciences. Our inter-disciplinary major presents students with choices from a rich and broad array of courses and disciplines in order to ignite their interest and passion on specific issue areas and regions of the world represented by our incredible award-winning faculty.
Our students are driven by the desire to know more and do more in the world in order to fight for justice, understand the complexity and history of the most important problems issues challenging all of us. Learn more about them in the Student News section, along with following us on our student moderated Instagram and Twitter accounts.
In the 2020-2021 academic year our students wrote and presented their Capstone projects along with helping to organize a number of efforts on campus, as well as completing internships, getting into graduate school and finding work.
Every year, we organize a trip for Global Studies students off campus. In the past this has included visiting UN Headquarters in New York City to observe a Special Work Group in action, along with participating in regional conferences. Once it is possible and safe for us to travel together again, we will resume these trips.
We hope that you take a longer look at our program on these pages, we can’t wait to see you!
-Nicole L. Freiner, Director of Global Studies
