The interdisciplinary minor in Global Studies will enable students across disciplinary areas to learn about global issues and gain first-hand experience both locally and internationally through academic coursework and experiential learning. The flexibility of this minor allows students to take upper division coursework on campus, and/or while participating in a study abroad or internship programs. A combination of coursework and experiential learning will allow students to develop capacities in three areas: global awareness, global diversity, and global action.
The four minor requirements include 20–24 total units and a digital portfolio:
- One gateway course, Global Thinking, EAP 001 (4 units)*
- Courses from the approved list (PDF) related to a designated global theme (12–16 units)
- Capstone Experience (4 units)
- Completion of a digital portfolio.
