More than students. More than scholars. At SGS, we are global citizens.


The Stanford Global Studies Division provides an arena for students and scholars to explore our increasingly complex world from multiple economic, political, social, technological and cultural perspectives. Our goal is to provide students and scholars with unique opportunities to explore the complexities of our globalized world from an interdisciplinary perspective.

We encourage traditional and innovative collaboration among our academic programs and centers and provide administrative and other support. SGS's programs are essential to the vibrancy of international research and study at Stanford University.
