Are you interested in a better understanding of what's happening in the world? Do you want a global perspective to enhance your career and open up new, exciting opportunities? Do you want new ideas and experiences to amplify your engagement with global affairs as well as your capacity for acting locally and being an effective citizen?
Champlain's 18-credit Global Studies minor allows students to design their own program, including their Core and travel abroad experiences, in a way that emphasizes and extends the globally aware, culturally diverse, and critically sophisticated aspect of their education.
Explore languages and international relations, and study current issues in specific regions and countries around the world. Broaden your horizons and grapple with issues of diversity, inequality and justice within your own community and the world. Gain extra qualifications for your career while having a challenging intellectual experience with some of Champlain's top teachers from every academic division.
Any student interested in the Global Studies minor should, at the earliest possible date, arrange a meeting with Champlain's Assistant Dean for Global Engagement, Adam Rosenblatt, to discuss his or her course of study.
Every student who minors in Global Studies must take part in a significant international experience in an academic context. Examples include traditional one-semester study abroad programs and classes with an embedded travel component.
NOTE: Global Studies is an 18-credit minor, and 12 of the credits taken to fulfill it must be unique to the minor-in other words, a student cannot count more than 6 credits to both his/her major program of study (or another minor) and the Global Studies minor.
