This interdisciplinary course explores the historical, cultural, political, economic, and technological factors that drive global interdependence. Using case studies and historical examples, the course examines the ways in which people, goods, diseases, and natural resources have flowed across political and cultural borders over the course of human history. This class has no prerequisite and it is open to all Michigan undergraduates. It can be used as a “gateway” course to explore the many options in area and international studies that are available through our academic departments and professional schools. It is a core course for the international studies concentration, it meets the social science distribution requirement, and it meets the geography requirement for public teacher certification in the School of Education.
