Global Perspectives Minor (A)

The minor is focused on the interplay between international cultures, economies, and natural settings as a background knowledge applicable to multiple employment opportunities and lines of work in the globalized marketplace.  It explores the connections between places and people from a global perspective. Understanding other places and cultures and how these relate to our own is increasingly important to navigating this interconnected world. Students are introduced to other cultures, histories, economies and environments, with an emphasis on how these influence us and in turn how we influence them as we evolve and change together. It is increasingly important for students to understand how cultures, economies, and nature interact at varied and multiple scales of experience. Students learn not only about culture, economy, and the environment, but also how to visualize and see these connections through the learning of and application of geospatial software applied over time and space.
