POLS 2401 Global Issues

This course introduces students to contemporary issues in global affairs. It assumes no prior knowledge of international relations. The course examines problems facing the global community, as well as the prospects for governments, individuals, and international groups to address those problems. The course has three broad areas: the global political economy; human development, inequality, and rights; and global institutions and security. Key to all these areas is the role of the United States and other regional powers in world affairs.
