PSPA 1002 - Global Issues in Politics♦


(5 cr.) Professionals working in the political science and public administration arena must have a firm understanding of current political, social, economic, and religious issues to successfully engage in decision making, political debates, policy making, and other responsibilities inherent to the profession. In this course, students develop their understanding of global society through political issues. They identify the major challenges to peace and sustainability in the global environment. They also explore and discuss issues related to energy, trade, human rights, healthcare, sex and drug trafficking, and the disparity between rich nations and poor nations. Through this course, students gain skills needed to stay abreast of global issues in politics, and they consider how these issues can affect their daily personal and professional lives.
