A minor in Global Studies consists of 18 hours, including a minimum of one 3 hour Global Studies (GLS) course. The remaining 15 hours must focus on a single coherent emphasis, such as: German Studies; Francophone Studies; Latin American Studies; African Studies; Development and Globalization; Peace, Conflict, and Human Rights; Judaic and Holocaust Studies (for other potential focus areas, consult the director). With the approval of the program director, students may create their own focus area if the university offers courses sufficient to support it. Only six hours of the major may be counted towards the minor in Global Studies, and at least 9 hours of the minor must be at the 3000 level or above. Credit hours from study abroad or international internship may be used in the student’s focus area, as appropriate.
