Global Studies GE Minor

Total Units Required: 18

The Global Studies GE Minor expands your worldview through increased awareness of the art, science, politics, foodways, religions, and economic systems of the world. You will learn to communicate across cultures and appreciate the challenges posed by unequal regional development. This minor is broadly applicable to students across majors and fosters global citizenship through knowledge of the world’s cultures and languages. Students are encouraged to study abroad and may apply up to nine study abroad units toward the minor.

Students who are already completing the associated General Education Global Studies upper-division Pathway can earn the minor by taking six courses from different GE Areas. Students who complete all courses in the minor will meet the University’s U.S. Diversity (USD) and Global Cultures (GC) requirements, as well as at least one upper-division Writing (W) course.
