This course encourages students to become active global citizens by better understanding
the origins, current status, and future trends of major transnational issues confronting
the global community. Topics can include population trends, economic development
and inequality, basic human needs (for food, water health care), the role of history
as narrative, human rights, international conflict and security concerns, and environmental
problems. The course also focuses on global governance, including the study of collective
global responsibilities and students' awareness of how global issues manifest locally.
