Global Studies

The minor requires 18 credit hours and must include 9 hours of upper-division work taken in residence at WSU or through WSU-approved education abroad or educational exchange courses.  Students should select one track from the three listed in the course requirements, and one module from those listed within each track.  Some courses may be substituted with the approval of the Director of Global Studies. In particular, many course equivalents may be taken through a study abroad program, and students are encouraged to discuss these with the Director of Global Studies.  Additional courses may be included within the minor as developed in the university curriculum.
