Minor in Global Migration Studies (code COLAUM01)
This new minor was recommended by the Academic Senate on September 20, 2012
and approved by the President on October 8, 2012.
The Minor in Global Migration Studies is a interdisciplinary program to provide students with an understanding of migration’s causes, effects, and impacts and a critical comparative framework for migrant’s experiences (history, gender, and culture). The core represents courses that have a wide survey of different migrant groups and provide a foundation for the more focused courses in the comparative framework.
Courses used to meet the certificate requirement may, where applicable, also be used simultaneously to meet General Education requirements or the major and minor requirements of cooperating departments.
Consultation with the program advisor to select courses that address at least two different migrant populations and include no more than 9 units from any department.
