British and Colonial/Post-Colonial Studies

British and Colonial/Post-Colonial studies is available as a minor on both the BA and BS degrees. This minor is designed to provide students with an understanding of the current state and history of Great Britain and its former and current colonies. It is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing upon departments and course offerings throughout the University, as well as the TCU in London Program. Through this minor, students become aware of how different areas of study, including art, film, history, journalism, literature, religion, and social behavioral and natural sciences, coalesce and contribute to the knowledge of a particular region. It also provides students with a framework for investigating issues of globalization, such as the impact of colonization on nations and their history and the state of the former colonies in contemporary life.
