POL357 Globalization and Political Change

[3–0, 3 cr.]

This course introduces the phenomenon of globalization. It examines its historical roots and the different views associated with its universal impacts. Is globalization helping the integration of world cultures, economies, and states or further fragmentation and differentiation? How is globalization helping the improvement of the quality of life and how is it not? How is globalization undermining war and at other times fuelling its causes? This course will address these questions from various points of view. 

Prerequisite: POL201 Introduction to Political Science
