TMST 8078 Global Citizenship: Interdisciplinary Seminar (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Today’s world is a maelstrom of cultures, languages, races, issues, perspectives, hopes, and challenges. In this course, we will look at some burning issues of our time: e.g., poverty, ecology, migration, refugees. This exploration will be achieved in an interdisciplinary manner by combining the cross-perspectives of social work, law, and theology. Special attention will be given to 'agent' - the person called to face world issues through the existential notion of mission, values, and purpose/vocation. Consideration will be given to the situation of Haiti, where the whole class will travel over the winter break for a field trip.

Schedule: Periodically

Instructor(s): Andre Brouillette, S.J., Margaret Lombe and Mary Holper

Prerequisites: Students who want to take this course and the field trip it entails will be interviewed. Requirement for STM students: one year of theological studies.
