Introduction to International Studies

This course will introduce students to the interdisciplinarity of the field of International Studies. Among other things, through the prism of globalization in its many forms, students will study trade and human development from a multidisciplinary perspective, international governance and the changing face of the nation-state, poverty and its relationship to health and hunger, as well as women in the global economy. Rather than covering each of these in depth, the course is meant to expose students to different regions and approaches so that, if they further specialize in their own region and discipline over the course of their college career, they will be familiar with different ways of looking at the world, as well as the ways in which other regions are different from or similar to their own region of greatest interest.
