The Graduate Minor is designed for doctoral students in any department at Ohio State. It allows students to supplement their graduate studies with a broader understanding of the theoretical, historical, and methodological concerns related to interdisciplinary studies of cultural and cross-cultural issues. The Graduate Minor requires 12 credit hours of coursework to include Comparative Studies 6390 and 6391, Approaches to Comparative Cultural Studies I and II, which examine the history and theory of comparative and interdisciplinary studies of culture. Six additional credits are to be chosen from 7000-8000-level courses in Comparative Studies. The latter are chosen according to the specific interests of each student, upon consultation with the student’s own advisor and the Minor Program advisor. Graduate students may enroll in the Graduate Minor in Comparative Cultural Studies by completing the Graduate Minor Program Form, available, along with additional information, on the Graduate School website: http://www.gradsch.ohio-state.edu/Depo/PDF/GraduateMinorProgramForm.pdf. Graduate Transcript Designation Forms should be submitted upon successful completion of the proposed coursework.
