Contemporary World Problems

The study of Contemporary World Issues is a class designed to engage and prepare students to analyze governments, people, and cultures from around the world. We will begin with some basic knowledge and understanding of past history. It will then emphasize the structures and policies of the United States and how they compare to other systems in the international community. Then we will apply critical thinking and research skills to examine current events and contemporary issues, including human rights, globalization, America’s role in the international economy, environmental issues in different regions, religion(s), and how it is often used to facilitate and justify violence and behavior, “War on Terror” and more.
