West LA College’s International Area/Global Studies program is part of an interdisciplinary effort by West’s faculty so you can develop the knowledge and skills you need to study and understand how our world is changing and how we can address the challenges of the future. You will learn to approach global challenges—current and emerging—from a comparative and transnational approach to research. We seek to prepare you to transfer for baccalaureate programs at UCLA, other UCs, and CSUs and to prepare you for whatever profession you choose.
Come. Explore the world. Join fellow students who want both curricular and metacurricular opportunities to develop a critical understanding of global issues to become engaged citizens of the world.
