The minor in Cultural Studies provides students with a foundation in the critical analysis of contemporary and historical material expressions—objects, communities and identities, bodies, institutions, spaces and environments—of the social world. To deepen our understanding of the relations of humans to each other and of society to nature, Cultural Studies brings together critical works that span the full range of the social sciences and humanities. The minor in Cultural Studies strengthens your grasp of the dynamics of everyday social life and broadens your critical analysis of the arts, architecture, design and the liberal arts.
