Global Citizenship (Minor)

Following a broad global citizenship vision, this minor provides students an interdisciplinary understanding of local, international, and global social structures and cultural contexts. Courses and programs affiliated with this minor allow students to explore how groups and individuals might exist within, relate to, and transform contexts of power across human societies over space and time. Students engage with skills and knowledge about social contexts directly impacting themselves and others. Contexts include but are not limited to race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, abilism, colonialism, government, health/illness, performance, and climate change. Depending on a student’s major or career interests, they may choose to take elective courses in the minor linked to their programs of study. Key topics tie back to a central question: How have people from different social positions and vantage points shaped, reshaped, and contributed to humanity in the past and present, and what might this mean for the future?
