Director of Global Studies
Hello! I am Aart Holtslag, the Director of the Global Studies Program at Shepherd University. As the director, I serve as the advisor for Global Studies majors and coordinate the program. I am located in White Hall on the 3rd floor in room 332. When I am on campus my door is always open for you to pop in and talk about your studies, plans, career, or whatever else you need my help with. During the advising period I will meet with each of the Global Studies majors to discuss your plan of study and your courses for the next semester.
My PhD is in International Relations which I earned at Florida International University. I have taught at universities in Florida, Massachusetts, and Bulgaria, and guest-lectured at several colleges and universities including a summer program at the University of International Relations in Beijing, China. Before coming to academia I worked as a human rights advocate throughout the world for different non-governmental and international organizations.
If you have any questions please feel free to stop by White Hall 332 or to email me by clicking on the link: Dr. Aart Holtslag.
