Living in Global Society

This component of the University Studies program includes courses that provide students with the tools that will help them to live ethical, meaningful, and productive lives in the global society of the 21st century. Many modern economic, political, and environmental problems transcend national boundaries and demand global solutions. Students should understand the interconnectedness of peoples and cultures and understand their world view in relation to the world view of others. Such understanding is likely to result only after careful examination of multiple facets of other cultures (including art, history, language, religion, etc.) in a comparative context. Courses in the Living in a Global Society component will expose students to these cultural differences and prepare students to interact comfortably and ethically on the global
stage.
