Students who complete the minor in non-Western studies may expect have a better knowledge and appreciation of the great diversity and richness of human cultures in our global society; begin to acquire tools for cross-cultural communication and critique; attain a critical understanding of their own cultures’ strengths and limitations; and become proficient writers at the college level (all courses being writing intensive). Students pursuing a non-Western minor may begin to take non-Western courses anytime, as early as the freshman year. Please, contact the program director if you have further questions.
