MINOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The Global Education Minor is designed to inform and engage students on how education is understood and operates in diverse international settings. GEM provides interdisciplinary views of social theories and comparative frameworks to understand leading global issues and to address problems in the global education field. It further aims to prepare undergraduates for careers in education that involve working with diverse international populations in the US and abroad. The courses are taught by leading UA faculty with expertise on and professional experiences with international education. Students will learn broad knowledge and skills necessary to move into entry level positions in international education. Additionally, students will be able to tailor their minor curriculum to more specific professional and academic areas of interest, such as schooling, human rights, and sustainability.
