Welcome to the Global Studies Minor
The Minor in Global Studies is a new academic program aimed at
providing students with the opportunity to focus their education on
understanding the interconnections between and among various
nations and cultures throughout the world, a project that has
become increasingly important in recent years as trade and travel
between regions and countries increases exponentially.
Global Studies is a multidisciplinary field of study,
incorporating aspects of History, Government, Philosophy,
Anthropology, Literatures and Languages, Religion and Theology and
Economics. The Global Studies minor allows students to engage with
these fields while at the same time enhancing their study abroad
experiences, using established Global Studies programs to create a
unique academic platform.
At its core, the Global Studies minor program is built around
the reality that a provincial education can no longer be considered
complete. Courses offered within the minor prepare students for
graduate study as well as for careers in law, academia, government,
international business, media and more. Please feel free to
Brian Lockey on the Staten Island campus with any
Global Studies Minor-related questions.
