The Global Studies Minor offers students a rigorous and multifaceted approach to examine global issues, emphasizing the interactions and interconnections among the various global actors, peoples and their societies. The Global Studies Minor provides a well-rounded instruction, which will help prepare students for a variety of careers in international affairs or allow for specialization in a specific region of interest. It will also prepare students for further graduate study in international studies, international business, peace and world order studies, area studies, and the emergent global civil society.
A grade of ‘C’ or better is required in each course to be applied toward the minor. Students must complete at least 12 unique credits to earn the minor; that is, a student may not use more than two courses from a major curriculum to satisfy the Global Studies Minor requirements.
