The Minor

The Global Studies Minor incorporates perspectives from a wide range of disciplines in order to explore complex economic, geopolitical, diasporic, and cultural exchanges across the world. Students minoring in Global Studies become aware of the migrations of peoples, economic goods, cultural products, and ideas across national, geographic, and conceptual borders through a wide range of media. Students also will explore international interactions, both at the national government level and at the sub-national level. The Global Studies Minor provides an overview of historical developments and emerging forces that knit the globe together, including a critical look at the histories of connectivity and an exploration of contemporary debates. The program introduces students to key theoretical concepts and research methods in the field, such as globalization theory, international relations theory, critical race theory, theories of empire and imperialism, and connectivity. In so doing, this program investigates the forms, structures, and practices that characterize the history and future of the global patterns of contact and conflict that underlie contemporary culture and society.
