Why are events happening in different parts of our world? How are these events affecting the people of our world? What might the future bring? What role can you play in these events? These questions and others will be the focus of the Your World in the 21st Century course. This course will take an in-depth look at current international and national events, issues, and the people or groups who are involved. The course will be project based with an emphasis on geography as well as the history behind the scenes of today’s political, social, economic, and environmental challenges. The course will provide students with opportunities to discuss the events and issues both in small and large group settings. Students should take this course only if they are interested in what is going on in today’s world.
