Global Development Studies at the Collegiate Level: An Overview and Regional Survey.
Babbott, Edward F.
The results of a survey designed to determine the global studies programs and courses of colleges and universities in nine northeastern states are provided in this paper. The report is divided into two sections that include a brief overview of the survey findings followed by short program descriptions from each of the 22 institutions which responded. Although the survey provides no way to gauge the amount of student interest in the programs offered or to know whether any given college or university has increased or decreased its offerings in this area during the last year, most of the reporting colleges are making a concerted effort to provide some sort of global education. There is, however, no single approach to teaching global studies at the college level. Most of the program descriptions contain a brief overview of the program or course offerings and the name of a faculty member to contact for further information. The descriptions are categorized according to graduate programs, undergraduate programs, combination of both, departmental programs, general education programs, single undergraduate courses, and consortia of cooperating institutions.
