3:26 p.m., Oct. 7, 2013--The University of Delaware’s Area Studies Fair will be held this Friday, Oct. 11, from 3–5 p.m., in the Perkins Student Center Gallery.

Hosted by the Center for Area and Global Studies (CGAS), the event, now in its second year, is designed to showcase the local opportunities that UD undergraduate students have to engage in global scholarship and to inform students about how easy it is to add a major or minor in area studies to their existing majors. 

Global Stories

Irish conference

UD early childhood education major Rebecca Vitelli recently attended the Irish Association of Teachers in Special Education conference in Dublin.

Civic leadership

Twenty-three college students from 16 different countries came to UD as part of a Middle East Partnership Initiative program focused on civic leadership.

UD offers majors in Asian, European, and Latin American and Iberian Studies, and minors in African, Asian, Islamic, Jewish, and Latin American and Iberian Studies. 

In addition to information, the Area Studies Fair will provide free food and beverages and an exciting array of artistic presentations to highlight different cultural traditions, from a tango exhibition, to Chinese and African dances, traditional Jewish songs and international music.
