Interdisciplinary Minor

The minor provides an opportunity to explore the various facets of an increasingly globalized world. It is designed to expose students to a variety of trans-regional themes on the one hand and particular knowledge of specific regions on the other. Building upon an approved study abroad experience, students are able to develop a broader understanding of the complex and interdependent global forces that shape our current world. The minor concludes with the capstone seminar (CGS 250) in which students in their senior year are given an opportunity to pull together many of the themes that they have studied in the relevant courses and explore a particular research topic in great detail through the writing of a major paper.
