Are you interested in global issues? Do you hope to live or work abroad? The global studies minor complements students' major fields with the analysis of a variety of international issues, global institutions and policy problems.

Description
Degree Awarded: Minor  Global Studies (Minor)

The minor program in global studies offers students exposure to global processes and institutions from a transdisciplinary perspective. The program aims to provide students with an introduction to the tools and skills necessary to make connections linking theory with challenging global issues.

At a Glance

The minor in global studies consists of 18 credit hours in global studies courses, 12 credit hours of which must be upper-division courses. Students who minor in global studies must complete two required courses:

SGS 101 Thinking Globally: The Individual and Authority, SB (3) or SGS 301 Principles of Global Studies (3) (but not both courses)
SGS 303 Global Trends, SB (3)

The remaining 12 credit hours must be chosen among global studies electives with an SGS prefix. Courses that count toward the minor must have a grade of "C" (2.00 on a 4.00 scale) or higher. A maximum of three credit hours of SGS 484 Internship or three credit hours of SGS 499 Individualized Instruction may be applied to the minor. A minimum of six upper-division credit hours must be taken in courses offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Depending upon a student's undergraduate program of study, prerequisite courses may be needed in order to complete the requirements of this minor.

Enrollment Requirements

GPA Requirement: None

Incompatible Majors: BA in global studies

Other Enrollment Requirements: None

An ASU student who is pursuing a degree at any ASU campus may elect to add a minor offered at any other ASU campus.

Current ASU undergraduate students may pursue a minor and have it recognized on their ASU transcript at graduation. Students interested in pursuing a minor should consult their academic advisor to declare the minor and to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. Minor requirements appear on the degree audit once the minor is added. Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate by the college or department of either the major program or the minor. Courses taken for the minor may not count toward both the major and the minor. Students should contact their academic advisor for more information.

What are Accelerated Programs?
ASU students may accelerate their studies by earning a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in as little as five years (for some programs) or by earning a bachelor’s degree in 2.5 or 3 years.

Accelerated bachelor's and master's degree programs are designed for high-achieving undergraduate students who want the opportunity to combine undergraduate coursework with graduate coursework to accelerate completion of their master’s degree. These programs, featuring the same high-quality curriculum taught by ASU's world-renowned faculty, allow students to obtain both a bachelor's and a master's degree in as little as five years.

Accelerated bachelor’s degree programs allow students to choose either a 2.5- or a 3-year path while participating in the same high-quality educational experience of a 4-year option. Students can opt to fast-track their studies after acceptance into a participating program by connecting with their academic advisor.
What are Concurrent Programs?
Students pursuing concurrent degrees earn two distinct degrees and receive two diplomas. ASU offers students two ways to earn concurrent degrees: by choosing a predetermined combination or creating their own combination. Predetermined combinations have a single admissions application and one easy to follow major map. To add a concurrent degree to your existing degree, work with your academic advisor. Either way, concurrent degrees allow students to pursue their own personal or professional interests.
What are Joint Programs?
Joint programs, or jointly conferred degrees, are offered by more than one college and provide opportunities for students to take advantage of the academic strengths of two academic units. Upon graduation, students are awarded one degree and one diploma conferred by two colleges.

What constitutes a New Program?
ASU adds new programs to Degree Search frequently. Come back often and look for the “New Programs” option.
What are Online Programs?
ASU Online offers programs in an entirely online format with multiple enrollment sessions throughout the year. See http://asuonline.asu.edu/ for more information.
