Minor

Global Studies at Providence College offers an interdisciplinary exploration of globalization and its effects upon communities, environmental sustainability, and the dignity of all living things. By emphasizing collaborative learning, participatory research, community engagement, activism, and cross-cultural competency, the major cultivates global citizens who think intentionally and are equipped to respond to the challenges of a diverse, complex, and globalized world.

Faculty in Global Studies support students in developing critical consciousness so they can question historical and social positions, and view the world through a problem- posing lens. This Freirean-inspired pedagogical approach invites faculty and students to think of systems of power and the large-scale socioeconomic and political implications that their actions have across national and international boundaries, to recognize that societies can be transformed, and to understand the kind of agency they can exercise to enact change.

The Global Studies minor will require students to complete eighteen credits (18) of course work.
