|INTL 450 - GLOBAL ISSUES SEMINAR|
This course is the capstone for International Studies majors and has
three major components: thematic, professional, and research. In the thematic
component students will explore from an interdisciplinary perspective the
multiple dimensions of globalization and how people have responded to the
expansion of a capitalist economy through various political, social, and
cultural strategies. People around the world live and relate to each other in
countless ways, however some systems of interaction are more visible and powerful than others. By understanding these systems and how people function within them or resist them, students will gain a better understanding of international
processes work, the issues they influence, and how they may affect the lives of individuals. The course will draw from sources and theories in Anthropology, Communications, Economics, Geography, Law, Literature, Political Science, and Sociology.
Students will draw from the courses they have taken for their major to undertake a research project in an area of their interest using qualitative, quantitative, or both methods. Early in the course we will discuss the methodologies and map out a plan for the research project.
As the culmination of the students' experience in International Studies, the course will encourage students to explore the options available to them beyond graduation, including fellowships, graduate school, and career options. To prepare students for the next step in their professional lives, the course will have a professional development component.
This course will run as a discussion seminar where all students are required to participate.
