This interdisciplinary program in Globalization, Identity and Space is intended to promote students' awareness of the differences and similarities that characterize the world's increasingly interconnected communities. It is a cooperative endeavor of the Anthropology, Geography and Pan-African Studies departments. The program requires successful completion of at least 21 semester hours of coursework selected from the participating departments. 

Students wishing  to graduate with this minor must take a minimum of 21 credit hours from the approved list of courses. These must include all three core courses (9 credit hours) plus four electives (12 hours) selected from the list. Those four courses must come from at least two of the three participating departments.
