Cultural Studies is an interdisciplinary program, incorporating such areas of study as art, communication theory, literary/textual criticism, history, nursing, performance, philosophy, political science, psychology, religion, science and technology and sociology. The Cultural Studies minor provides students the opportunity to examine past and present connections among individual identity, communities, societies, cultures and systems of power. Additionally, the student will explore the ways in which people come to understand and respond to perceived differences among groups. All minors require an internship and/or individual study in a subject area related to the minor. An internship adds a valuable experiential component to the academic requirements. The city of Columbus provides a variety of opportunities for internship experiences.
