Intercultural Global Studies

Make the world your classroom

Students in the intercultural global studies (IGS) minor take an innovative approach to understanding and engaging with diverse cultures within the United States and across the world.

Combining coursework with real-world engagement

By combining interdisciplinary coursework that complements your major with domestic and international engagement experiences, you'll develop essential intercultural skills. You'll also integrate theory and practice to make a positive impact in today's interconnected global society.

As an IGS student, you will:

  • Integrate real-world engagement experiences—such as service learning, study abroad, internships and field study—with your coursework.
  • Think critically about how cultural practices such as racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, and xenophobia perpetuate power and inequality.
  • Explore how to establish more just and equitable societies.
  • Understand how local issues are influenced by global culture and global issues by local cultures.
  • Work across a wide range of academic disciplines.
  • Become more proficient in multiple languages.

Intercultural global studies is the DU minor that makes the world your classroom!
