Global Perspectives

The Global Perspectives course seeks to create global citizens who take action toward creating a more just and sustainable future. Guided by the Universal Apostolic Preferences, the course uses contemporary world literature to examine issues of global significance such as education, poverty, peace and justice, migration, and climate change. In addition to reading literature, students will watch films, conduct research, and implement individual and group projects on global topics of choice. Through virtual exchanges and other activities, students will gain a deeper awareness of the international network of Jesuit schools and will consider their role in carrying out its global mission. Global Perspectives is the foundation course for the Ignatian Global Scholar program. The course is open to sophomores and juniors.
