Global Studies

The Global Studies Minor is designed to enhance students’ understanding of diverse cultures, global issues, and other languages. The minor integrates language competency and global/intercultural studies to give students the tools to become engaged citizens in the local/national/global communities they enter after graduation. This minor adds an international perspective to any major.


I feel it is my responsibility as a fellow human to stand as an advocate and support system for others who need a voice. I would not have accomplished half as much as I have during my college years if it had not been for the community members who both challenged and encouraged me throughout the process.
