POLT 12900 Introduction to Global Studies

The connections between the industrialized nations of Europe, North America, and the Pacific (the "North") and the "third-world" nations of Africa, Asia, and Latin America (the "South"). From interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives, the course examines a number of global issues -- that is, issues transcending national boundaries, such as food and famine; population; foreign aid, debt, and development; natural resources, energy, and the environment; and national security and militarism. National and international public policies relating to these issues are examined critically and policy alternatives are explored, as are individual responses and responsibilities. The course emphasizes geographic literacy and global awareness. Students may receive credit for only one of the following courses: POLT 12900, ANTH 12900, HPS 12900. 3 credits. (F-S,Y)
