Students develop proficiencies in widely applicable skills and frameworks, such as cultural relativism, comparative analysis, cross-cultural communication, research design, and ethnographic field research. Students have the opportunity to work with faculty members with regional expertise in Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America and who teach courses on contemporary issues such as globalization, digital technologies, consumerism, sports, gender and sexuality, tourism, and social movements. This minor can complement a wide range of majors throughout the university, providing students with regional expertise and a depth of cultural understanding.
