The global cultures minor at Wilkes University positions you to understand the multicultural world, to act ethically and effectively within it, and identify what further study is needed to become a leader on the global level within your discipline. You can tailor the curriculum to expand cultural knowledge in your existing major course of study. 


This minor allows you to build a unique curriculum leading to a focus in one global culture or a related issue, and to integrate that knowledge into your career plans or further knowledge in this area through graduate studies.

As a global cultures minor, you will take 18 credits, including courses in these categories:

  • Understanding Cultures of the World
  • Philosophical or Political Differences
  • History of Cultures and Global Forces
  • Interacting with the World, Environment and Sustainability

Each global cultures student is required to take GC 301: Global Cultures: Issues and Perspectives and at least one (1), but no more than two (2), foreign language courses of any level.
