The Cross-Cultural Studies minor brings together international students and students from the U.S. who have cross-cultural experience to address and explore regional and global issues in team-taught, interdisciplinary seminars in a comparative framework.

It is designed to help students who are studying a particular area of the world or a discipline with an international focus (e.g., majors in area studies, languages, history, economics, political science, literature, anthropology, religion, etc.) to place that area or discipline in a broader, cross-cultural context by seeing how it participates in and is influenced by trans-national, sometimes global dynamics and problems.
