Minors: History, Political Science, Anthropology/Sociology, Global Studies, and Gender Studies

Global Studies prepares our students for the real world of study and work beyond our narrow national borders. It opens up new worlds of thought and social science applications relating to hundreds of different fields, including international business, public health, and diplomacy.
