Global Studies & Social Justice Minor

Global Studies & Social Justice Minor

The purpose of the Global Studies & Social Justice minor is to provide students with broad contexts for: thinking through difference and diversity, facing challenging engagements with multicultural and intercultural dynamics of power, and also increasing personal awareness of how our own selves emerge and are shaped by global forces and processes. The goals of this minor are to increasingly globalize student perspectives, engage with others across many types of boundaries as well as learning to be advocates for a more socially just society.
