Global Studies Minor

Students! Please remember when consulting the course idea list the following:

  • Students must work with advisors to determine whether courses on this list will work with the student’s Minor Plan of Study.
  • Courses should be considered as OPTIONS for students to consider with an advisor. Each student must be able to articulate why the courses they have selected will fit into his/her thematic area or area studies.
  • All substitutions to your Minor Plan of Study must be approved by an advisor.

Global Studies majors develop the interdisciplinary knowledge and intercultural skills necessary to analyze and solve contemporary world problems. In consultation with an advisor, students select courses from a variety of departments to form a coherent program of study suited to individual interests, educational and career aspirations. The Global Studies minor can complement any major.

A total of 21 hours, with a minimum of 6 advanced hours, is required for the Global Studies minor. Minors are strongly encouraged to take GLBL 100 prior to pursuing the minor to gain an understanding of the field.
