Global and Cultural Studies InterdisciplinarySamford Global and Cultural Studies majors explore the relationship between cultural forms, everyday life and structures of power in a global context. They earn a language minor, travel abroad or serve in an internship, and otherwise tailor the interdisciplinary program to their specific calling.
HistorySamford history majors are intellectually curious, and thrive in a hands-on, problem-solving environment where they become detectives in pursuit of sources and answers. By studying the past–using old ways and new–they learn to think with rigor, write with clarity, organize and assess evidence, analyze problems and interpret complex events. They tell the story of all of us–who we are and where we’ve been, what we’ve thought and said and done–so we can preserve our past and help shape our future. They become leaders in professions ranging from education to law, business to public service, historical preservation to diplomacy.
The Asian Studies minor serves global studies majors who choose to concentrate on Asia, and students in any major who have an interest in Asian history and a desire to develop proficiency in an Asian language.
The skills and knowledge of historical inquiry make a history minor an outstanding complement to degrees in political science, international relations, pre-law, journalism, education, ministry, sociology, English, language, geography and many others.
