Global Studies: Hurdles to Program Development
Campbell, Patricia J.; Masters, Paul E.; Goolsby, Amy
College Teaching, v52 n1 p33 Win 2004
In this article, we examine a new global studies program that departs from the traditional state-centric approach and uses a geocentric, or earth-centered, approach that emphasizes the roles of individuals, grassroots organizations, cultural groups, and international organizations in an attempt to help students conceptualize global events and their role in the world as interrelated and interdependent. We describe the process of program development, the program itself, and the challenges of program approval. (Contains 15 endnotes.)
