DC Institute for H.S. Students
The Global Village
The Global Village (SOC 203) is 3 credit college course normally taught during the regular academic year that has been redesigned for visiting high school student to complete over a shortened summer experience. The material covered in this course is relevant to every student regardless of their intended major because whatever field you enter you are certain to work with colleagues and clients from different cultures and backgrounds.
The Global Village will focus on globalization, which refers to an increasing connectedness that has resulted in economic, political, and cultural exchanges that transcend national boundaries. The degree to which social life still takes place within national borders as well as what it means to be a member of the global community will be discussed and considered.
Through interactive classes and applicable field experiences, we will examine how this increasing global interdependence impacts our daily lives and how our interdependence can affect the future.
The course will be taught by Marymount professor Dr. Janine DeWitt and Dr. Loes Damhof from Hanze University, Netherlands.
