Minor in Cultural Studies

The minor in Cultural Studies is designed to enhance and supplement students’ studies in a number of other areas, including anthropology, education, English and mass communication. In these areas of study, the fundamental questions posed by cultural studies give students a broader, more critical look at the interactions between their fields of study and society as a whole. These courses may also provide a useful complement to any undergraduate program of study.
