Why Minor in Global Studies?

Champlain is committed to ensuring that every student receives an education that includes a global perspective. Through our 15-credit Global Studies minor, students can 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.

  • Act locally, while thinking as a global citizen.
  • Explore current issues, history, and languages of specific regions and countries around the world.
  • Engage deeply with theories and perspectives on cultural diversity including race, class, gender, and nationality within local and global contexts. 
  • Analyze political, economic, and social dynamics of globalization that will impact you in your professional life and future career.
  • Critically reflect on your social, cultural, and intellectual experiences while studying abroad through an interdisciplinary examination of the concept of global citizenship in the Global Studies Senior Seminar.

Courses in the Global Studies Minor

NOTE: 9 of the 15 credits required for this minor must be unique to the minor. A student cannot count more than 6 credits to both his/her major program of study (or another minor) and the Global Studies minor.

  • Complete one 3-credit course about the specific region/area where the international experience takes place, or a faculty-led travel course. For international students studying at Champlain College who pursue a Global Studies minor, any 200-level COR course would fulfill this requirement.
