The Global Studies and Global Studies with Language minors give UD students the opportunity to increase their awareness of global issues through the study of contemporary global trends.

A new academic initiative in fall 2014, the Global Studies minor curriculum prepares students to succeed in an increasingly globalized world by exposing students to the political and cultural foundations of global issues.  Students explore a broad range of global issues, from climate change and environmental degradation to international migration and diasporas, human security, global health threats, and more.
