GLS Core I
Identify and assess global trends in political, financial and social areas and become an empowered leader who communicates and inspires across cultural boundaries. Global Studies is an interdisciplinary approach to thinking critically about global issues. This Bachelor of Arts is structured around intellectual and experiential frameworks that empower students to analyze, adapt, communicate, problem-solve and empathize. The Global Political and Economy emphasis examines the mechanisms of order and disorder, and cooperation and conflict among humans. It also explores the major types of formal organizations, including nation-states, international or transnational organizations, and nongovernment organizations. Students gain knowledge of diverse global institutions and their political, economic, social and cultural impacts on the world. They also develop ""global competency"" by obtaining the necessary skills for engaging in problem-solving across boundaries.
This course explores literary, artistic, philosophical, and critical approaches to major topics in Global Studies, examining questions such as: What affects the terms and outcomes of cultural encounters? How are values and beliefs defined and transformed? What do writing, translation, literature, and other areas studied in the humanities teach us about global studies? What doors open when a person can study a language deeply?
