This course offers analysis of political philosophies and governments in the modern
world and promotes cross-cultural understanding: reviews racial, ethnic and sexual
issues from a minority-majority perspective; and deals with issues of discrimination
and oppression. The course will cover world history leading up to the current diffusion
of population and the emergence of modern forms of communication and transportation
that appropriate areas of inquiry for students in a professional program.
Multiple perspectives and modes of representation of global issues are examined using
a variety of sources in order to equip students with the skills to analyze and evaluate
different artistic representations and interpretations. This course explores topics
in literature and the arts that are international in scope, whether through specific
influences or in response to historical, philosophical, political and aesthetic developments.
An independent research project is conducted in a foreign country. Students will work
individually with a program faculty advisor to devise a suitable course of study.
This may involve participation in course work in a foreign institution, subject to
approval of the global studies advisory committee.
The global studies internship is a variable credit (3-12 hours) required course that
encourages juniors/seniors to investigate a career through a placement in a professional
setting or in development of future projects (graduate study). This allows students
to work under guidance of an immediate supervisor and/or a college faculty sponsor.
