The interdisciplinary minor in Cultural Studies requires 18-24 credits of coursework. At least six credits must be from courses which are numbered 300 or above. 

The courses offered in this program are interdisciplinary in their content and structure and explore a topic in greater depth and from broader perspectives than is ordinarily possible in other courses. Many courses are team-taught by faculty chosen from various academic departments and colleges within the University. Courses emphasize the sources (artistic, literary, philosophical, and historical) of the period studied and focus on the aspirations and achievements of our own civilization.
