Global Studies at Aarhus University
The Department of Global Studies provides a distinct approach to understanding our contemporary world by combining language-based area studies of Brazil, China, India and South Asia, Japan and Russia with European and International Studies and a global perspective. As an academic field, Global Studies was only born in the late 1990s and its exponential growth and importance soared in the 2000s, which led to the establishment of the Department of Global Studies at Aarhus University in 2011.

The main elements of Global Studies are all based on the insight that contemporary global conditions cannot be studied in ways reserved for states and their interaction only. Taking a holistic approach, Global Studies takes history, cultural studies and anthropology just as seriously as political science, sociology and economics. In step with this approach, we do not understand nations and regions as cultural containers, but as globally connected. Likewise, disciplines are not understood as knowledge containers, but as connected ways of addressing similar questions.

For a more detailed description of the programme and department, please refer to this website: http://cas.au.dk/en/about-the-school/departments/global-studies/

The Department of Global Studies belongs to the School of Culture and Society, where the object of research and teaching is the interplay between culture and society in time and space:

* From the traditional disciplines of the humanities and theology to applied social research
* From antiquity to the issues facing contemporary societies
* From local questions to global challenges.
