Minor in Global Engagement

Main page content

The Minor in Global Engagement offers an interdisciplinary curriculum that integrates theory with practice and that connects students to the places and communities they are studying through its community-engaged seminars. Small faculty to student ratio, a cornernstone of Honors education, allows for the in-depth exploration of a wide range of topics. Emphasis is on the development of critical thinking, writing, research and leadership skills.
