The cultural studies minor is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on how culture and power intersect everyday life. Cultural studies work specializes in creating and practicing methods of critical thinking that can be applied to the study of popular culture. The program makes "theory" and scholarly research a participatory project. Students develop expertise in critical cultural analysis, especially in the workings of gender, race, social class, different abilities, and sexual orientation in everyday life.
