The minor program in global studies offers students the opportunity to learn about issues related to globalization. Human rights, religion, world trade, the environment, culture and violence and conflict are subjects from which students may choose to further their knowledge of our ever-changing world. In addition, students whose major is sustainability or business, for example, will find courses in those areas that place their major study in a global context.
Students will learn to make connections between theory and challenges that impact people and governments around the world. The global studies minor offers students the content and skills that complement those of their major degree but also provide them with a strong stand alone program of study.
A student wishing to pursue a specific minor should consult an academic advisor in the unit offering that minor to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. The student should also consult an academic advisor in the college or department of the major to make sure the college or department of the major allows the recognition of the minor.
Note: Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate either by the college or department of the major or minor. Courses taken as part of a minor may not count toward both the major degree and the minor. Please contact the department for more information.
