Minor in Honors Global Engagement and Leadership

Program Description

The Honors minor in Global Engagement and Leadership builds upon the existing core upper division courses of the General Education Honors Program (Honors 101, 102, 103) and is dedicated to interdisciplinary inquiry. The minor provides the ideal avenue for students to hone their intellectual skills and apply their education in the real world. Building upon the campus initiative to encourage global education the coursework invites students to explore ideas beyond the boundaries of their majors and to engage in a scholarly conversation with the broad university community and community at large. Students who complete the minor should truly be life-long learners who view themselves and engage as global citizens.
