21st Century Global Affairs
Open to students in grades 9-12, 21st Century Global Affairs is a dynamic one-semester course designed to address major global issues and challenges facing the United States and the global community. Presented from an “issue-oriented” perspective, students will analyze and offer solutions to acute foreign policy crises as well as other contemporary global concerns. These concerns may include the rise of illiberal regimes, global economic challenges, impacts of global climate change, and disruptive global events (such as the Covid-19 Pandemic). Importantly, issues we explore will change from semester-to-semester in order to best reflect the major challenges of the times.
Students with aspiring global aspirations/interests should consider taking Intercultural Studies I and II from the World Language Department in addition to this course.
