Global Engagement Minor

Program Description

The Global Engagement Minor (GEM) draws from many disciplines across the University to give you the awareness, knowledge and, in some cases, the skills necessary to understand our complex and rapidly changing world. 

This minor focuses on the practical and theoretical issues arising from cross-cultural encounters both by examining conventional cultural products and practices and also by investigating their broader political and social contexts. It recognizes that there is hardly any aspect of contemporary human existence that is not in some way affected by the increasing global interdependency of humanity.

The Global Engagement minor is designed to integrate an international perspective into your education, fostering a deeper awareness that we are all citizens of a global community.

This program is not accepting new admits for 2024-2025.
