Global Studies Minor

(15-18 credits)

Coordinators: Paige Eager, Leonard Latkovski

The Global Studies Minor is an interdisciplinary  program of study  which examines the dynamics of globalization in the world today and their historical foundations.  It examines the multiple interconnections of states, regions, economies and societies.  It studies the historical, political, commercial, cultural, environmental and technological aspects of this phenomenon .  The purpose is to better understand the dynamic forces, both positive and negative, of modern globalization.  The study of a foreign language beyond the college requirement is strongly recommended, but not required for the successful completion of the minor.

This minor requires that students take a minimum of 15 credits from among its courses. One course (GLBS 300 Challenges and Opportunities of Globalization) is required.
