Globalization Studies

Globalization Studies modules engage students in critical analysis of the dominant forces of globalization—mobility, integration and change—from the vantage point of human life. In the core courses in the Globalization Studies streams, students learn to distinguish prevailing theories about how globalization works, learn about the social, environmental and political entailments of capitalism, and consider alternative social, political and economic formations. Supplementary courses explore the emergence of resistance movements, localized alternatives to globalization, the impacts of mass production and consumption, the place of community in a globalized world, and more.
