Focus on the myriad ways that people, markets, organizations and governments have been linked across national borders throughout history
What is global studies?
Globalization affects virtually all facets of our daily lives, from pop culture to economics to politics and everything in between. Many of the pressing problems of the 21st century — climate change, environmental sustainability, terrorism, pandemics, etc. — transcend national boundaries and need to be solved as a global community. The global studies minor explores the challenges and opportunities that arise from living in an increasingly interconnected world and gives you the tools to solve problems and view issues from different cultural perspectives.
