What students are saying about Global Inequalities and Social Change


I chose the Bachelor of Global and International Studies (BGInS) degree because of its multidisciplinary approach to creating global citizens. In the BGInS degree, I am surrounded by students interested in law, global development, politics and the environment who are linked together by our passion for international relations. Carleton is located in Ottawa, the nation's capital, and this proximity to the creation of Canadian federal policy has allowed me to begin practically applying my studies at the Library of Parliament.
