Area Studies

Housed in the Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies, Area Studies plays a pivotal role in internationalizing our campus and coordinating the following programs:

African and African American Studies minor website: www.gvsu.edu/aaas

Latin American Studies minor website: www.gvsu.edu/las
Middle East Studies minor website: www.gvsu.edu/mes

In addition to dozens of classes which introduce students to the complexities of the major world regions, Area Studies organizes numerous events which expose the university, as well as the community at large, to the many issues and wonders of our shrinking world. The Area Studies office coordinates over 50 events annually which intellectually nourish and culturally enrich GVSU. The activities of Area Studies are supported by dedicated joint appointees and associate faculty across the university.
