Global Liberal Studies (Minor)

Program Description

The GLS curriculum is grounded in spatial, temporal, and conceptual understandings of a highly interconnected world, explored through the critical and innovative study of texts and contexts, the movement of ideas and peoples, the confluence of material cultures, cities, crossroads, and changing modes of communication. The Global Liberal Studies Minor embraces this interdisciplinary approach, uncovering the roots of many of our current challenges and the dynamics of our shifting social imaginaries and geopolitical realities. It allows students to strengthen their ability to analyze critical cultural, social, political and economic issues across borders, deepen their intellectual curiosity and agility, and make connections from a variety of global perspectives.
