POL 230 - Global Politics, Institutions, Ethics, and Law

3 credits
This course is designed to engage students in examining contemporary global issues. Four themes are focused upon: (1) global conflict and cooperation, (2) international institutions and law, (3) global political economy, and (4) global environmental and natural resource politics. The course itself will be taught primarily via a unique learning approach: simulations. Students will spend significant time during the semester engaged in a series of fictional simulation exercises that reflect the theories, issues, and foreign policy debates covered in class readings and presentations.
Term Offered: Even spring semesters
