Global & Post-Colonial Studies Minor 

The most effective artists and communicators are those whose knowledge is broad and multifaceted. At Emerson, the liberal arts provide the stage that supports our performers, the lens through which our artists view the world, and a medium that students use to express their vision. The Global and Post-Colonial Studies minor aims to provide students with an understanding of our increasingly complex, globalized world. Through the lens of literature, the arts, history, politics, and culture, students will be introduced to key concepts in global and postcolonial studies. Through an awareness of marginal knowledge systems and neglected histories, students will critically engage the global in their lives.
