Cultural Studies Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors and Programs

The Cultural Studies (CS) minor is an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis of contemporary culture and its relation to society that prepares students to transform creative enterprises and industries with a commitment to equity, social justice, and a more humane, democratic society. CS helps students to think critically about cultural politics more generally, looking at the way identities and subjectivity are developed, reinforced, embodied, and performed by becoming adept at examining how race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, social and economic class, and nationality inform the power structures that undergird culture. While the CS major provides an important centrepoint for the critical study of culture and society in the humanities and social sciences across the curriculum, the Cultural Studies minor is an excellent supplement to those studying production and performance. Serving students who seek the superior thinking and communications skills afforded by the liberal arts, Cultural Studies prepares students for career opportunities in arts administration, non-profit management, teaching, community and social service management, public relations, and social media communications positions, as well as preparing students for graduate school or law school.
