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.
