Students should decide that they would like to pursue the accelerated global studies option prior to or during their junior year.
The accelerated global studies option is designed with the highly motivated student in mind. It is important that students consult their advisor as soon as they decide that they would like to pursue the accelerated global studies option due to the amount of course planning that is involved with an accelerated degree.
