This interdisciplinary program of study provides students a broad perspective on the contemporary, policy-based considerations affecting the formulation of strategies for global security. A crucial part of the minor, comprising a significant portion of the credits, develops the philosophical, theological and historical context of the current issues impacting global security today.
The course of study leading to the award of a Minor will require the student to successfully complete a series of upper level courses totaling 18 credits.
The student will select three courses from each of the two groups of courses below. The courses in Group A provide an important philosophical, theological and historical context for issues involving global security. The courses in Group B address contemporary, policy-based considerations affecting the formulation of strategies for global security in the current context.
A student required to take any of these courses to fulfill a requirement for their Major may not also count the course towards completion on the Minor. No more than two courses may be taken from any one Major field.
