GLST 5673 - Globalization and Development


3 credits

This is a course that aims to position students in the larger context of global systems – economic, cultural, and geopolitical. The primary objective is to increase understanding of the interdependent world in which we live – and the pervasive, unstoppable movement of globalization that characterizes it. The course also seeks to equip students with some of the necessary cultural knowledge and empathy required to operate in the increasingly dominant “monoculture,” and at the same time to navigate (and value) multicultural distinctiveness. Finally, the course explores the ethical and spiritual dimensions of global citizenship.
