Cultural Studies Minor

The Cultural Studies (CS) minor is an academically rigorous interdisciplinary minor that provides Columbia students with an opportunity to think deeply and critically about the cultures that surround them. As an essentially interdisciplinary liberal arts program, the CS minor complements well any major course of study a student may choose. By learning to analyze the values, ideas, and belief systems that inform cultural products and everyday practices, students minoring in Cultural Studies are better able to contextualize their artistic, creative, and media practices and are prepared for critical citizenship in a globalized world of diversity. The CS minor includes core Cultural Studies courses as well as electives from across the three concentrations of our Cultural Studies major program: Literary Studies, Media and Popular Culture Studies and Urban Studies.
