The information and links on this page will help you find classes each quarter during Registration Pass Times.
Global Studies is an interdisciplinary major using classes from 20 different departments at UCSB.
Each quarter before Pass 1, we update this information to let you know which courses are being offered.
Visit this page for some helpful videos on using GOLD to check your degree requirements and degree progress audit - this helps you know what classes you have taken and what you still have to take.

There's information about some Global courses and then a list of courses from other departments. These courses in the various affiliated departments have NOT been added to the official requirements sheet, but will count for the major as indicated - either UD Area II-B (global topics) or UD-Area III (geographic regions).
