Through intensive study, research, and discussion, our students learn to identify and analyze complex international problems in their historical, technological, and ethical contexts. In addition, our students analyze complex global issues like human rights, poverty, and cultural intolerance, and are then challenged to produce and communicate creative solutions to these problems.
