Global Social Issues

This general education course explores current political, economic, cultural, and social changes that are transforming our world. We focus on globalization and its consequences, drawing on theoretical perspectives from sociology and other disciplines. We examine how countries are increasingly interconnected by flows of information, people, and money and develop our understanding about the consequences of globalization for people, business, and nations. The class ends by studying social movements working to increase understanding and reduce the harmful impacts of some negative outcomes of globalization
