GLOA 101 - K02: Intro to Global Affairs

This course provides an introduction to the interdisciplinary field of global studies. Globalization often refers to the increasing ties among nations, cities, and individuals across the world. Although these kinds of global exchanges have been occurring for a very long time, technology has facilitated connections between more spatially distant locations and increased the pace at which interdependence has occurred. Throughout the semester, we will explore various dimensions of globalization.

Every '101' course is mandatory to take, but not always fun and enjoyable. GLOA 101 might be similiar. However, I will try to deliver 'intellectually stimulating' content and interactive discussions between the instructor and students, and among students yourself. Let's make something enjoyable together!
