Global Studies -2nd Semester Elective Course  View Blog


Description:
This course is designed to help prepare our students to become citizens of the world who can imagine creative solutions to today's challenges. The twenty-first century has transformed how people live, work, and think. More than ever before, interactions between cultures transform our ideas, values, technology, and way of life. Students will have an opportunity to study countries and regions of the world with a better understanding of the connections of the geography, political, government structure, economic development, social and cultural heritage, environmental concerns, energy resources and allocations, human rights, and the sustainable and transitional relationship with the United States and other political units.
