INTDS 190   Introduction to Global Citizen Scholars, 2 credits

(SPRING 2021 Thu: 3:00-4:15 pm Schultz East Alcove.  

 

An introduction to the cohort-related theme of the global citizen scholars program.  Students explore the theme through an interdisciplinary evaluation of domestic and international policies, structures, and systems.  Students evaluate questions of rights and responsibilities within domestic and international settings, and in the context of diverse beliefs, values, and worldviews.  Drawing from a variety of sources, from peer-reviewed and policy-based literature to news media articles we analyze how knowledge is developed in this field and how and why various publics may perceive things differently.   Emphasis is on developing civic identity and a commitment to finding ways in which they might take action individually and collectively.  Students must be Global Citizens Scholars to enroll in this seminar.
