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

This Winter Session, 23 UD students traveled to New Zealand where they discovered the abundant marine organisms, culture and sights the southwestern Pacific nation has to offer.

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.
