Minor in Global Studies

The Minor in Global Studies promotes an understanding of how globalization impacts the physical and human environment. The minor allows students who are already enrolled in other degree programs at CSUSB to gain an abbreviated interdisciplinary perspective in the study of globalization.  The goal is to better understand how the social, cultural, political and economic spheres of human life effect, and are affected by, globalization.
