Rationale

This minor will prepare students for work and life in a modern and interconnected world. It promotes critical perspectives on the social, political, economic, literary, psychological, artistic, philosophical, and cultural processes associated with globalization and the impacts of global media. The interdisciplinary approach of the minor, taken from the full range of the humanities and social sciences, allows for students of all majors to enhance their degrees with the prospects of a global perspective.
