EPL 450 Global Citizenship

  • 4 hours

This course is designed for students who have lived or studied outside of the U.S. for at least a full semester. It will enable students to reflect on how their immersion in a foreign culture has affected their values and vocation. By combining practical experiences with scholarly and artistic works, students will a) reflect on the role of culture, b) think about the articulation and application of values in the public sphere, c) explore the relation among politics, economics, culture, and society, and d) develop their own ethical perspectives as "global citizens." There will be a heavy emphasis on writing, group work and oral presentations. Satisfies the Paideia 450 requirement.
