Course Description: This 4-credit course is the core course in the Global Learning curriculum of SUMMIT. It introduces first-year students to global structures, systems and processes and connects these concepts to first-hand immersion experiences. Drawing on a variety of disciplines, interests and expertise, the course explores complex and interdependent relationships across the globe. Students will examine a set of global themes through common readings, dialogue and small-group discussions. These learning experiences will enable students to identify, describe and evaluate critical assumptions surrounding global issues. This course also prepares students for their first-year immersion experience, providing them with the knowledge to recognize how global processes operate in a specific location, as well as the skills to engage in meaningful intercultural communication.
