Globalization has advanced so far, that it is now a part of our daily life in everything from culinary culture to clothes and daily necessities. As our cultures become increasingly shared on a worldwide scale, our society must face a number of challenging 21st-century issues. These include discrimination, poverty, armed conflicts and disputes, educational inequity, disparities in information availability, environmental destruction, and human rights issues. The Department of Global Studies and Collaboration equips students with the knowledge that will enable them to address these problems, and the skills to transform their ideas into action.
Our Department takes an interdisciplinary approach around four learning “clusters”. “Collaboration” explores the nature of armed conflicts and disputes; “Business” aims to overcome poverty through studies about employment and methods of industry creation; “Media and Spatial Information” looks into what is happening around the world, including the lack of information infrastructure in certain areas, and selective information dissemination; and “Sociology” seeks to elucidate the current state of discrimination, and the mechanisms that drive it. Pursuing studies in these four areas simultaneously, enable students to acquire the knowledge required to pursue activities in a wide range of fields.
