Global Studies Minor

27 units

The global studies minor is a multidisciplinary program that adds a rich, experience-based intercultural emphasis to any student’s major course of study. One of the core features of this minor is the Los Angeles Term, in which students interact with people and cultures from throughout the world that are profoundly shaped by financial flows and cultural products originating in cities like Los Angeles. Why a regional program in a global curriculum? Global learning can no longer be defined either by the exotic aspect of cultures or geographic distance from home. The realities of Los Angeles and the wider world—whether cultural, economic, political, or environmental—interpenetrate and mutually define each other.
