The Global Studies Minor 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.

Why pursue a Minor in Global Studies? 

  • Gain a deeper understanding about a world-area through the study of its history, culture, language, politics, environment, ecology, and society.
  • Engage with students across the global studies community through events and seminars.
  • Maximize your Bing Overseas Program study abroad by using credits towards a minor.
  • Receive preference for the Stanford Global Studies Internship Program.
  • Become an informed global citizen.
