Some Common Combinations

Global Studies Major and Anthropology Minor
These disciplines truly complement each other by providing greater insight into the foundation of a country’s political, economical and cultural existence. Not only will you develop a strong knowledge of the global connection between these factors, but you will know the path each civilization took to arrive at that connection. These studies will help you understand conflicts and global situations from multiple cultural perspectives, giving you a unique and highly academic view of the world. This is especially helpful for students interested in working for a foreign organization or in a career in archeology or journalism.
