This course offers an in-depth and interdisciplinary examination of various aspects of globalization including economics, human dimensions of environmental change, culture, ethics and power. The course aims to build student understanding of the relationship between theory and application in the field of international studies. This course is designed for international studies minors, as well as majors who are expected to bridge between introductory materials and capstone coursework. Restriction: Minimum of 45 credit hours complete; IS majors and minors only

Renaming the IS 393 course to "Theories in Globalization" more accurately reflects the content and topics covered in the class. The course aims to provide students minoring or majoring in International Studies with a theoretical understanding of some of the key issues in the field in order to connect these with current events and/or case studies. IS 393 is offered every semester, and since it is restricted to majors/minors only, and it is required of both student groups, it is appropriate for this course to be taken for a letter grade only.
