Curriculum with a World View
We provide a range of opportunities through which students develop a global perspective. It starts with our curriculum.
Our global education curriculum includes Art History, Global History, World Literature, World Music, World Religions and a Global Concerns Seminar elective. Our courses in Spanish, Italian, Latin, Greek and Mandarin encompass language, literature, history and culture.
Technology is regularly integrated into our classroom instruction through video conferencing, communication and presentation tools. Google Expeditions take students on virtual tours to modern Venice and Ancient Rome or Machu Picchu. Google Cultural Institute brings the students inside museums in Europe. Additional web tools such as backchanneling, Quizlet, VoiceThread and YouTube are also used by students.
The Stephanie Clemente Broadcast Studio, a state-of-the-art facility, offers another vehicle to extend these learning opportunities to faculty and students.
Guest speakers often share personal experiences on topics that add a global dimension.
