POE-130 Global Issues

This course considers select global issues that currently challenge the international community. Each class session will cover a different issue and look at the debates surrounding them. Often referred to as "transnational issues," or issues too vast and complex for a single country to resolve, the course topics include global population trends, water scarcity, oil supplies, global food production, climate change, drug trafficking, human trafficking, internet freedom, immigration, refugee crises, nuclear proliferation, religious extremism, terrorism, superpower rise and decline, and other topics. This non-lecture course will emphasize student-driven discussion based on set of common readings. This course is open to all students.
