We live in a world where global and local events are increasingly interconnected. The primary purpose of the course is to provide a sociological interpretation of global human dynamics. Issues of concern include areas of changing political economy, ecological sustainability, and international conflict. Major theories of development, i.e., modernization, dependency, and world-system will be examined. Alternative models of development and the role of different cultures in the national quest to advancement will also be discussed. In addition, this course seeks to understand how solutions to common problems such as globalization, environmental degradation, and the war against terror will affect American society as well as the global community.
