A graduate in the Global and Intercultural Understanding concentration could work in international business, foreign relations, translation, outreach, or education. This concentration is also good preparation for law school and graduate studies in public administration, anthropology, international studies, and public health. General Studies, like many majors, teaches content and skills that can be applied to a wide variety of career fields.
