Global Citizenship Thematic Thread

The Global Citizenship Thread will provide students an enhanced understanding of the interrelationship of cultures, economics, history, environment, politics, social justice and global communities. Courses in this thread will deepen students’ knowledge of interdependence and interconnectedness of world peoples, cultures, and nations from historical and contemporary perspectives. Students will demonstrate critical thinking, reflection, and analysis of global dynamics that better prepare them to participate in the increasingly globalized society.
