Passionate about international issues, global democracy, human rights, environment, security? If you believe globalization affects all aspects of our lives, consider a minor in Global Studies.
This interdisciplinary minor provokes students to think about how globalization touches their lives and to analyze distinct responses to globalization's effects on societies, governments, cultures and natural resources. Key questions are: What is globalization? What accounts for the phenomena of globalization? When did the world's polity, economy, environment, culture, and society become global? What analytical tools exist to help students understand globalization's influence on politics, cultures, values and ecosystems?
Global Studies faculty members are committed to working closely with students and engaging them in meaningful learning projects including undergraduate research, service learning, and study abroad trips.
