Learning doesn’t have to take place in the classroom. The Global Studies minor within the College of Education focuses on education in an ever-changing globalized world. Combined with classes on multiculturalism in education and an emphasis on globalization, this minor shows employers that you have a global perspective and international experience, which can set you apart from other educators.
