Global Studies Minor


Maybe you’ve been everywhere from Trinidad to Budapest, or maybe you’ve never left your home state. No matter your previous experience, a global studies minor can feed your curiosity, strengthen your intercultural skills and strengthen your job prospects.

This minor builds on Goshen College’s signature global experience, the Study-Service Term (SST). All GC students complete at least 12 credits of global education. Some spend a semester in another country or domestic context; others pursue international or domestic courses that run sequentially.

Students who have completed SST have the option of adding a global studies minor to their degree. This requires 15 additional credits, chosen from the list in GC’s course catalog. Options include both traditional classroom courses–such as Islam, World Literature and Race, Class and Ethnic Relations–or additional immersive travel courses, such as a May Term in Israel-Palestine or in Guatemala. You can choose any five courses and tailor your choices to fit your interests and major.

If your SST experiences leave you with a hunger for more, a global studies minor is a great way to add breadth and depth to your global citizenship.
