Transnational, Community, and Cultural Studies

A globe of the Earth.

Our focus on transnational, community, and cultural studies capitalizes on UMass Boston's current strengths in international research, teaching, and service across all colleges for developing new and innovative international and transnational initiatives and programs for improving the overall quality of life. With our tremendous intellectual capacity and strong interests in global issues, affairs, and programs, as well as the exceptional academic educational environment in the Boston area, UMass Boston, as the only public institution of higher education in this global city, has all of the elements for taking on a leadership role in the transnational-international arena.

Efforts are also underway for establishing international centers of excellence that are multidisciplinary and cut across the biological, physical, environmental, and social sciences as well as the fields of humanities, arts, and information technology, among others.
