Global Studies Minor

The Global Studies minor at Christian Brothers University is designed to complement the student's major. We believe global studies are most effective when students combine them with the expertise developed by specializing and majoring in a discipline or professional program. The courses constituting this minor have been carefully selected to provide international understanding through interdisciplinary course work designed to strengthen their major and promote success in achieving career goals.

Objectives

The program objectives are to prepare students for participation in the emerging global economy and culture through: A course of study that introduces them to a variety of international issues and concerns in selected courses which address world art, music, literature, politics, economy, religion, history, environment, geography, anthropology, and foreign language. Demonstration of second year proficiency in a foreign language. Participation in a University approved international travel and study experience. Students are strongly advised to incorporate a global perspective in their major discipline capstone project and may work with global studies minor faculty to assist them.
