The common acceptance of globalization in today's world demonstrates the importance of understanding what happens in the global community. This course, therefore, introduces students to key concepts and principles relevant in international studies. We will explore and analyze global actors, trends, issues, challenges and concerns, as well as their interactions and the resulting implications. Moreover, we will examine and debate various critical international issues and explore a range of theoretical approaches that help us understand relations within and among the global community. Ultimately, the goals of the course are to enable students to (1) recognize patterns in international interaction; (2) build awareness of international affairs; (3) enhance ability to analyze global issues and concerns; and (4) promote understanding of global challenges. At the conclusion of the course, students should be able to think critically about the global community, compare and contrast the relevance and importance of global issues, and detail ways in which they can play a role in global affairs.
