Global Studies

GLOBAL STUDIES 11, World Geography: Introduction to Global Studies 3 units

Transfer: UC, CSU

C-ID: GEOG 125.IGETC AREA 4 (Social & Behavioral Sciences) Prerequisite: None.

This course satisfies the Santa Monica College Global Citizenship requirement.

This course introduces Global Studies through a survey of the world’s major geographic regions. Students will encounter core concepts related to processes of global connection and change, while also developing basic geographic literacy in the distribution of human and natural features on Earth. Students will examine and discuss significant issues--cultural, social, political-economic, and environmental--impacting humanity today as both problem and possibility. In particular, this course considers the diverse localized impacts of globalization as a continuing story of peoples and places isolated and connected by imperial, colonial, and international systems of the past and present.

Global Studies 11 is the same course as Geography 11. Students may earn credit for one but not both.
