International Studies | Global Integration & Development
I203 | 6575 | Lindley, T.
I203 is the core course for the International Studies concentration
in Global Integration and Development. As an introductory course it
will focus on the specifics of and interactions between the
political, cultural, social and economic factors that influence
human development at global, national and local levels. We will
explore these factors at work in developing countries and seek to
blend theory with practical application. I203 covers a substantial
part of the social sciences literature on development and will
include discussions on dependency, globalization and sustainability
as well. This course also introduces major theoretical perspectives
on the structure, function and governance of international markets.
