Due to globalization, technological innovations and other factors that directly affect our life interdisciplinary programs are on the rise in institutions of higher learning. Villanova is also moving in this direction by introducing a new major in CULTURAL STUDIES applicable to any geographical area or cultural phenomena, national or transnational in scope.
A versatile interdisciplinary major that complements a disciplinary study giving students an edge to compete in an increasingly tight market for graduate programs, employment, or other forms of intellectual engagement.
Congratulations to our CST major, Karolina Wolnicki, the recipient of the prestigious Boren scholarship for international study and spent the year (2013-14) in Brazil and she obtained an extension for one more semester. She is now in Salvador de Bahía (Brazil) studying at the Universidade Católica do Salvador
