Ph.D. Minor in Global Studies

The minor provides a theoretical and methodological framework for the interdisciplinary study and critical analysis of global phenomena. Each minor student develops an individualized program in joint consultation with Professor Stephen Macekura (smacekur@indiana.edu), and their graduate mentor, that best complements and provides a global context to the student’s disciplinary and professional academic programs and specific regional interests.
