Douglas Heffington, Director

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 eighteen credit hours depending on the academic emphasis chosen. Nine required hours include the three-hour introductory course GS 2010  (Introduction to Cross-Cultural Experiences) and the capstone course GS 4990  (Senior Seminar). Students will also be required to take a minimum of three hours of GS 3010  (Field Experience and Study Abroad), however up to 12 hours can be obtained. To complete the minor, a minimum of three courses will be selected from approved courses in the departments/ programs listed with the advisement and approval of the program director. (See departments/programs below with courses meeting global, international, and cross-cultural focus of the minor.)
