Students will examine five dimensions of a global perspective: Perspective Consciousness, State of the World Awareness, Cross-Cultural Awareness, Knowledge of Global Dynamics, and Awareness of Human Choices through numerous activities as well as regular reflective writing on topics covered in the course.  Lectures, readings, and class discussions cover conflict, both individual and on a global scale; population and reproductive freedom; world languages; cultural geography; and an examination of religion through the lens of the world’s sacred places.  Students may participate in the No Impact Project, a learning opportunity that asks students to examine their habits of consumption. The ASU campus and the larger community of Boone become the classroom as students grow and harvest food in Appalachian’s Edible Schoolyard Community Garden,  participate in a culture simulation, or visit local houses of worship and ethnic grocery stores.
