Beyond the old and new core courses and elective options, you have many options. While you are completing your pathway, whether LPC AA or AS, CSU GE, or IGETC, you will have to take electives that you can either use to explore other fields of interest or to deepen your knowledge of Global Studies. Below are some of the fascinating courses you could consider:
Anthropology 12: Magic/Religion/Witchcraft/Healing
Art History 2: Art of the Ancient Americas
English 45: Postcolonial Literature in English (offered summer 2021 only)
Geology 7: Environmental Geology: Resources, Use Impact, and Pollution
History 25: American Indian History
Humanities 4, Global Cinemas
Psychology 21: Introduction to Cross-Cultural Psychology
Women's Studies 2: Global Perspectives of Women
Some of these, for example Women's Studies 2, may even count for required courses in some universities' Global Studies BA's.
Note: If you do plan to go on and earn a Global Studies BA, it is strongly recommended that you take both the 2A and 2B semesters of a language course, if possible, while you are still at LPC. However, some universities want you to be taking a language that matches your global area of concentration. If you took Spanish in high school but want to focus on Asia for your BA, it would be better to start with an Asian language online through the California Virtual Campus. Consult with a counselor concerning the requirements at the universities to which you may transfer.
