GLOBAL STUDIES… Global studies will help us become “global thinkers” in every sense. Drawing from fields as different as geography, music, political science, and ecology, we will look at the connections between nations and peoples and the trends that shape our lives. In Global studies we will compare regions across the globe to shed light on world issues. We will study many different areas, including political science, economics, language, and cultural. “[Global studies] is a field that emphasizes the interconnections and interactions among phenomena, whether commodities, migrations, or popular music.”
IT HELPS TO BE... Flexible. Sometimes you’ll need to look at the big picture; at other times you’ll need to zoom in for an in-depth study of a particular region or nation.
