Globalization is a complex web of interwoven processes that affect virtually all facets of our daily lives, from pop culture to economics, politics to climate and everything in between. The global studies minor focuses on the myriad ways that people, markets, organizations and governments have been linked across national borders throughout history. It also explores the challenges and opportunities that arise from living in an increasingly inter-connected world:
A complement to virtually any degree program, this minor allows students to actively engage in global issues while also developing cross-cultural awareness by studying issues from different cultural perspectives. Courses cover various dimensions of globalization, exploring everything from free trade and global supply chains to the problem of international terrorism to global public health issues, and much more.
The global studies minor is comprised of five courses, and you may view the curriculum in the box below. For more information, please contact Melinda Negron-Gonzales, associate professor of politics & society.
