In this course, students gain insight into factors that influence current global politics. While topics change over time in response to global events, students will examine a range of issues, such as the concept of democracy, the emergence and development of states, nationalism, political ideologies and conflict in a variety of settings. To address these themes, students focus on select political contexts in Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America and North America.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
