The Popular Culture Studies Minor is intended for students interested in developing an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Popular Culture. The goal of the Interdisciplinary Minor in Popular Culture Studies is to provide tools for undergraduates to build bridges between the popular, public, and material cultures of their daily lives and the cultures that are the traditional objects of study of the University.
