GLB-301 Global Issues and Society

The purpose of this course is to educate and encourage the development of globally competent and culturally aware citizens. The course is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be engaged, responsible, and active members of a globally interdependent society. Students are encouraged to go beyond the scope of their immediate surroundings and explore the world with the multiplicity of opportunities, risks, benefits, and threats. An integral component of the course is developing the feeling of belonging to a global community, which entails advancing cultural awareness and cross-cultural competence. As a part of the learning process, students will analyze the importance of cultures around the world. They will be introduced to concepts related to cultures in different regions (Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East) illustrated through case studies on how culture has impacted the world through the historical, contextual, and cultural differences.

Advisory: To be successful in this course, students should have earned 6 credits in the social sciences.
