The Intercultural Global Studies minor, housed in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, represents an innovative interdisciplinary approach to understanding cultural similarities and differences of diverse groups living in the United States and throughout the world. In an increasingly interconnected society, this minor serves to develop essential intercultural critical and analytical skills and to bridge the gap between the knowledge of these skills and their application through coursework and structured domestic and international engagement experiences. The purpose of the minor is to integrate and complement the student’s major fields of study with humanistic and social science training in navigating today’s global society.
