INTL 113 - Introduction to International Studies: Border-crossing in the Age of Globalization

Open to first- and second-year students. This course develops a base of knowledge, concepts, and analytical skills for engaging with International Studies’ multi-dimensional concerns. Ranging across disciplines but with an emphasis on social science, we study global theories of interaction and conflict between human groups and explore sites and implications of increasing encounter. Focusing on culture, people flows, nationalism and ethnicity, democratization, contending interests, security, religious fundamentalism, gender, and modes of community integration, we examine how particular cases reflect broader processes. Open to first- and second-year students, or permission of the instructor. (4 Credits)
