Global Social Entrepreneurship, Minor
This minor is specifically designed for students in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities (CSSH). This five-course (20 credits) interdisciplinary minor in global social entrepreneurship (GSE) is administered by the D’Amore-McKim School of Business through its Entrepreneurship and Innovation Group (ENT) in collaboration with the CSSH for shared academic content in international affairs/political sciences and human services programs.
The minor consists of three on-campus courses and one two-course Dialogue of Civilizations Program (Dialogue) in South Africa and India. The minor is open to business and nonbusiness students. Several of the courses included in this minor may also apply to other programs or individual course requirements. Because this minor is interdisciplinary, a student may apply only three courses from any one college toward completion of the minor. For example, after a student completes Global Social Enterprise (ENTR 2206) (a D'Amore-McKim School of Business course) and a D'Amore-McKim School of Business Dialogue, then the remaining two courses must come from CSSH. If, alternatively, a student completes a qualified CSSH Dialogue, then he or she may thereafter take one or two elective courses from the D'Amore-McKim School of Business.
Finally, note that business students can pursue this minor or alternatively choose to pursue the ENT concentration with a track (“concentration track”) in social entrepreneurship, which requires four ENTR courses in social entrepreneurship and does not require a Dialogue. Students may also choose to pursue both the minor and the ENT concentration.
Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified.
Note: No more than three courses may be taken from any one college.
