Global Themes

As you create your path through the program, you will explore one or more of the global themes. These global themes represent big ideas and provide broad contexts in which to consider global challenges. Choosing a theme that interests you is critical because it will help frame your beyond-the-classroom experience and capstone project in your junior and senior years.

Each theme encompasses challenges relevant in Montana and around the world. These challenges are complex and can be approached from many angles. The challenges listed for each theme are examples rather than exhaustive lists. You can think well beyond the examples listed and tailor your challenge to your interests.

Culture and Politics

Resources and Sustainability

Public and Global Health

Inequality and Human Rights
