Global Studies, Minor

Program Director: Lowell Barrington, Ph.D
Education Abroad Adviser: Megan Pavlic

The Matteo Ricci Minor in Global Studies encourages Marquette students to gain academic and experiential knowledge of countries and cultures beyond the United States. We take inspiration from Matteo Ricci, a Jesuit priest who lived from 1552 to 1610, who was one of the first Europeans to travel to China and learn Chinese and who succeeded in providing a bridge between European and Chinese cultures. The minor is for students who want to join in this Jesuit tradition of travel and learning.

The minor requires study abroad and course work in international studies. Most students can complete a substantial portion of the minor while studying abroad, but all of the required courses are also available at Marquette.
