The Global Cultures Minor serves as a foundation for undergraduate students with an interest in cultures and an aim of informing their major courses of study with cultural knowledge. In close consultation with the Global Cultures (GC) Advisor, students will plan a coherent course of study that allows the construction of a unique curriculum leading to a focus in one global culture or a related issue, with the intention of integrating that knowledge into their career plans upon graduation or furthering their knowledge in this area through formal graduate studies.
The Minor in Global Cultures requires 18 credit hours, including GC 301 - Global Cultures: Issues and Perspectives and at least 1, but no more than 2, foreign language courses at any level. In addition, students will choose 5 courses from among the GC-approved courses listed below or any course with a study abroad component. Students are also encouraged to select appropriate special topics courses according to area of interest, in consultation with the GC Advisor. Students cannot count more than two courses with the same designation toward the GC Minor without approval of the GC Advisor.
