|Lecture hours per week|
|Lab hours per week|
This course analyzes contemporary global issues using critical methodologies. It begins with an examination of how competing ideological perspectives view global issues and reviews analytical models that provide students with critical thinking methods.
Students deconstruct the root causes of current global issues such as human rights abuses, global economic and social inequality, and the ecological crisis. Using critical theories, divergent solutions proposed by various stakeholders, such as governments, corporations, international organizations and activists, are assessed for possibilities in achieving structural and social change.
