The Minor in Cultural Studies (18 credit hours) is designed to give students the tools they need to add depth to the work they do in their majors. As a program that emphasizes research and critical thinking, Cultural Studies offers a new dimension to the education of the art and media students at Columbia College because what they learn in the minor will nudge them toward more substantive understandings of their work. The program seeks to help students understand aesthetic, political, social, and economic relationships between cultural production and reception. They will learn to critically read and analyze the diverse information that is produced in everyday life, enriching their understanding of the complexity of culture. This minor is particularly useful for the numerous students across the college who are drawn to the depth and diversity that Cultural Studies offers. Even as they hone their technical skills in their primary fields of study, students who minor in Cultural Studies will be inspired to think about context in new and dynamic ways.
