How the Global Perspectives Program works
The Global Perspectives program uses the history and culture of Ireland, past and present, as a platform for an intensive comparative study across the disciplines of history, literature, social justice, environment and sustainability, business, politics, social studies and leisure. The program consists of 15 modules, and each module includes a lecture on a specific topic, guest contributions, site visits and a guide to class assignments. Assignments are short, easy, and done on your smart phone, in the form of short video uploads. In the course of this program, you will learn a lot about a very different culture- but you will also see how much we have in common.
