The Global Studies Minor Program is interdisciplinary and provides opportunities for students from any discipline or major. Students in the program develop an understanding and appreciation of how and why interactions across national and ethnic borders are shaped by language, culture, politics, economic development, and conflict. Currently, the Global Studies Minor Program is comprised of four minors and a number of specialization tracks which address issues from the perspective of different disciplines.
My favorite class is 'The Practise of Terrorism Studies'. I take the work that I do [in my research internship] at START in maritime piracy, then I came into class, and we discuss the linkages between policymaking and research...that's one of the main purposes of research, to influence policy and inform other individuals who are in position to change things.
