GS 2050 - 21st Century Global Issues

Certain problems migrate across national boundaries to become global issues. Population growth and the movements of peoples, energy use, environmental challenges, the spread of disease, hunger, the control of weapons of mass destruction—all are examples of problems that need to be addressed by all nations. The focus of this course is on understanding how certain problems are addressed (or go unaddressed) by nation states, international organizations, and non-governmental organizations. Students learn processes for finding out about these issues and applying those methods through group and individual projects. Students will be encouraged to reflect on how these issues may affect them personally and what they can do about them.
