At a university that embraces big dreams, big ideas and big stages, Global Leadership Studies is an interdisciplinary program that empowers you to be a catalyst for global change

In the Global Leadership Studies major, you’ll explore complex 21st century issues that are global in scope, such as human trafficking, economic inequality, refugees, climate change, peace and security, gender inequality and more.

You’ll learn to think critically, communicate effectively, embrace ambiguity, foster creativity, anticipate change and understand international issues – skills very much in demand for leaders and decision-makers in an increasingly global workplace.

In Belmont’s hometown of Nashville and in cities around the world, you’ll get to apply classroom knowledge to real-world settings from day one through internship, volunteer, and study abroad opportunities

As you pair your passion for a better world with developing your unique leadership path, you’ll be equipped to pursue many career options and shape innovative solutions to problems faced by communities both locally and around the world.

"This major was a gateway to allow me to step into the international field with developed cultural awareness and emotional intelligence. My advisor supported me from the moment I stepped into her office. Through her encouragement and help, I obtained wonderful internships, met international scholars, developed a supportive network for post-graduation and most importantly, learned the impact women can have in executive leadership positions."  Read more about Shannon's experience as a global leadership studies major.
