This course is a senior-level seminar designed to integrate and further refine the analytical, writing, and presentation skills acquired as a Government or International Affairs major. Its premise is that any student of politics or international affairs should graduate a bachelor's degree program with a refined sensibility of the concept (and varying realities) of globalization. The course covers case studies and theoretical analyses of the global dynamics of economic, cultural, religious, media and/or political relations, as well as the role of technological change in global processes. Students prepare and present an original, extensive case study and analysis of globalization processes, if possible relating to the student's work as an IA or Government major.
