The Development of a Global Perspective during Participation in Semester at Sea: A Comparative Global Education Program.
McCabe, Lester Thomas
Educational Review, v46 n3 p275-86 1994
Focus group discussions with 14 participants in the University of Pittsburgh's Semester at Sea (a global education and travel program) showed most students did not change dramatically on five dimensions of global perspective: fear/openness, same/different, naivete'/cross-cultural understanding, nationalism, and ethnocentrism/globalcentrism. Some program elements influenced students toward broader perspectives. (SK)
