Notre Dame's Keough School Offers New Supplementary Major Notre Dame's Keough School Offers New Supplementary Major

Students at Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame will have a new opportunity this semester. A supplementary major in global affairs will be offered to students in the incoming class of 2022.  

The 30-credit hour program will provide students with knowledge of political, economic and social institutions of the 21st century. Students will be able to choose from Asian studies, European studies, international development studies, Irish studies and peace studies. The coursework is designed to enhance a student's primary major, requiring them to pair a global affairs major with a major from another of the university's colleges and schools in fields related to business, the humanities, science, engineering or medicine. 

R. Scott Appleby, Marilyn Keough Dean, says this is an exciting phase in the growth of the school. “Our students care deeply about giving back — lending their remarkable talents and enterprising spirit to the task of fighting poverty, making peace, promoting human rights and addressing climate change. They will do so through the lens of human dignity. Incorporating the expertise of our interdisciplinary institutes and centers, they will take a holistic and ethically sound approach to global ‘problem-solving.’”
