The Department of Anthropology accepts applications for the Global Culture and Commerce (GCC) minor on a rolling basis. Please contact either Richard Handler (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Rachel Most (email@example.com) for more information.
The GCC minor focuses on the intersection of two sets of issues: (1) cultural translation and cross-cultural knowledge, and (2) local and global economic and cultural development. This minor speaks to a longstanding interest of College students for a liberal arts perspective on the world of global development and international business.
The GCC minor will consist of six courses, to be distributed as described below, and one co-requisite language course BEYOND THE 2020 LEVEL.
The program is directed by Richard Handler and Rachel Most, who also serve as the academic advisors for students in the program. Admission to the minor will be by application. Interested students should email the following materials to Richard Handler (firstname.lastname@example.org):
Each student will plan his or her program with one of the directors, choosing courses in the above categories in a coordinated fashion. In general, each student's program will be designed to focus on a set of substantive issues, relevant to specific areas of the world. The program directors will consider exceptions to the co-requisite language requirement in the cases of bilingual students or students who wish to begin study of a second language.
