Globalization: Current Issues & Cross-Cultural Perspectives

Section 64440

  • Note: This approach to WRIT 150 offers students chances for writing and critical reasoning that foreground global contexts. Students will work on writing projects, lessons, and ancillary assignments that foster awareness of human connectedness through engaging with current issues and perspectives in globalization. Some topics that will be covered include: imperialism, international relations and political history, macroeconomics, free trade agreements, immigration reform, revolutions and social movements, and comparative cultural studies. The transnational framework of this course will give students a unique opportunity to practice composition and critical thinking in especially timely and multidisciplinary ways
