Courses in Globalization Studies

The Globalization Studies Major is designed for students seeking a liberal arts education focusing on major global issues. Students will gain a systematic awareness of the global forces and processes that shape our lives, and they will study and discuss major global issues and problems.  "Globalization" is a relatively new term to describe economic, social, political, cultural, and environmental processes and interactions among peoples and nations around the world.  These interactions have been occurring for thousands of years. What is different in the 21st century, is the degree, scope, and intensity of interdependence and interconnectedness that the human community is experiencing globally.  These interactions are facilitated by dramatic changes in information technologies, the integration of the world economy, and the reconfiguration of many regions and nations.
