Global Studies

What You'll Study

The minor in global studies is available to all Stanford undergraduates from any major, and is designed to give students in-depth interdisciplinary study in one of six specializations within a larger global context:
All students will be required to complete 28 units, including a three-unit global studies gateway course, Global 101. The remaining 25 credits are unique to each specialization. Upon completion of the minor, students will present their capstone seminar with other global studies minor participants. Students participating in the Bing Overseas Studies Program are encouraged to enroll.
