Global Studies Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Interdisciplinary Majors and Minors

Director: Douglas Heffington, Department of History

The objectives of this interdisciplinary minor are to prepare students to make effective decisions as global citizens; induce and nurture global and international perspectives in students as they pursue various academic majors and career goals; and increase academic opportunities for undergraduate students to study, learn, and explore cultural and physical environments other than their own.

A minor in Global Studies requires a minimum of 18 credit hours.

Interdisciplinary Minors


Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Except for the Paralegal Studies minor, no course may be counted both for major and minor credit. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.

Electives (9 hours)


  •  9 hours taken from Global Studies courses, the guided Global Studies electives, or selected by the student with the Global Studies advisor’s approval and must be global or multicultural in nature and perspective
