Minor in Global History

See the world, Know the world

The TCU minor in Global history is designed to foster transnational cultural literacy through historical, interdisciplinary, and experiential learning. Students are encouraged to participate in Study Abroad and to gain knowledge of global affairs in non-US universities.  The experiential component provides an opportunity to study in a non-traditional context, such as an internship or independent project.
