Global and Intercultural Studies Co-Major
For information, contact the Department of Global and Intercultural Studies, 120 MacMillan Hall, 513-529-2018.
The GIC Co-Major enhances a primary degree by exploring questions related to global systems of power in our interconnected world. The Co-Major examines questions related to belonging, identity and culture, as well as economic and political trends. Students learn to address contemporary issues, such as immigration, poverty, inequality, and sustainable development, using interdisciplinary perspectives and diverse frames of reference. Students, will, with an advisor, design a concentration in an area of interest to them, such as Global Economies; Critical Race and Ethnicities; Human Rights and Social Movements; Migrations: Transnationalism and Diaspora; Critical Gender and Sexualities; Visual and Popular Culture; and Environment, Science and Health. GIC Co-Majors may have a primary major in any department and division. A minimum of 18 credit hours must be unique to the Co-Major, thus, outside of students' primary major coursework.
