Raby, Rosalind Latiner, Ed.
In 1986, the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) approved a revised mission statement affirming the importance of multicultural, international, and intercultural collegiate experiences that foster individual and group understanding. LACCD's International Curriculum Project seeks to promote and support the development of classes in international studies and the introduction of international components into existing classes. This catalogue presents summaries of over 175 International Master Modules that encompass over 60 disciplines and subject areas as well as new courses that reflect an international perspective. The courses have been taught at LACCD institutions as well as institutions in other states. Grouped into 46 alphabetized disciplinary categories, each module includes the course title, instructor's name, institution, and a brief description of the course. Discipline subgroups are as follows: agricultural development, anthropology, apparel manufacturing, art, biology, broadcasting, business, cinema, child development, communication, comparative education, computers, cooperative education, economics, English, environmental science, French studies, geography, German studies, health, history, humanities, international studies, Latin American studies, law, library methods, linguistics, modern dance, museum studies, nursing, personal development, photojournalism, political science, population policies, psychology, social science, sociology, Spanish studies, statistics, steam plant operations, technology, theater, travel tour guides, and world history (Poland).
