INT 100 – International Studies I
We live in a turbulent global village. News travels at a very fast speed from one region of the globe to another. Knowledge of cultural values and the transformation of societies be it through political changes or war is right before our eyes through the ever-vigilant media and the network of the social media. The world today is producing a very sad song. The current world needs leaders who will be instrumental in bringing healing to people in order that the human community is able to produce a positive and joyful song that builds life. This course combines the integrative approach that brings together the wisdom of religious studies to a deeper understanding of the rampant violence around the world motivated by an erroneous connection to religion and the interdisciplinary approach to international studies for equipping the postmodern leader in the fulfillment of his or her calling to spread peace and justice to a world crying out for healing and freedom from suffering.
