Overview

The Global Studies in Education minor is part of the Curry School’s Social Foundations of Education program. The minor provides an interdisciplinary view of social theories and comparative frameworks that stretch beyond traditional definitions of teachers and school administrators to delve into concepts of school and society; history, philosophy and culture; and educational policy, theory and practice.

By investigating global and national educational problems from different perspectives, students engage with real-world issues. They examine many of the most pressing concerns facing 21st century schools; to wit: poverty, inequality and human rights; the role of states, the international community, NGOs and civil society in policy making and implementation; the influence of history, culture and tradition in schooling; and intersections among the economy, societal and social policy.
