Exploring Global Citizenship:
Understanding Our Responsibilities and Opportunities in a Changing World
Are you interested in learning about our responsibilities towards addressing global challenges and opportunities to create positive change in the world? In this seminar, we will look at the historical and cultural roots of global citizenship, the political and economic systems that impact global issues, the importance of empathy and cultural understanding in promoting global citizenship, and the role of education in fostering global citizenship.
Students will learn about global issues related to sustainable development goals through readings, videos, discussions, and presentations. We will also examine case studies of global challenges that highlight the ways in which individuals and communities can take action to address these challenges. In the second year, students will pick a topic of interest related to sustainable development goals and do a research project about it.
While studying about global citizenship, students will develop a range of skills that are essential for success in their academic, personal, and professional lives.
Relating to academic skills, students will learn the foundations of good research by gathering, evaluating, and synthesizing information from various sources to support their arguments and ideas. They will also develop their communication skills through assignments such as essays, presentations, and discussions. On a personal level, students will learn the importance of effective cross-cultural communication and empathy. Professionally, students will develop their leadership and collaboration skills through group work and discussions.
This seminar will be useful for students who are interested in transferring to 4-year university programs that focus on global issues, environmental sustainability, or international relations, business, and development.
Although this seminar will be conducted in English, there is no minimum English requirement. That means there will be a mixed English level and we will work together to make things easy for everyone to understand.
