Global & Post-Colonial Studies Minor

The minor aims to provide students with an understanding of our increasingly complex, globalized world. Through the lens of literature, the arts, history, politics, and culture, students will be introduced to key concepts in global and postcolonial studies. Through an awareness of marginal knowledge systems and neglected histories, students will critically engage the global in their lives.
