Contemporary Global Issues
This course is designed for students who would like to develop a deeper awareness of the challenges the world faces today. It aims to increase students' English proficiency while developing social and cultural awareness and global perspectives. Students enrolled in this course will engage in a community service-learning project which will involve a one-time service in a local community organization. They will also be required to create project-based solutions for issues discussed in class. The course aims to empower students to take actions to help address global problems and make a positive difference.
The SENM program is a student-centered module-based program which offers students choices and small, interactive classes. The program encourages students to tailor their English learning to their specific needs and interests by offering four semester-based modules: Career and Profession, Daily Communication, Multiculturalism, and Self-Expression Skills. Additionally, within each of the four modules, there are different themes, or topics, around which each course‘s curriculum is built. Each SENM student can choose two different module courses in one academic year according to their needs and interests. The program’s small class size (no more than 25 students) means that a variety of class activities such as discussions, role plays, and presentations are an integral part of the program.
This specific course belongs to the Multiculturalism Module. This module provides students with opportunities to experience different cultural phenomena. It helps students to cultivate multiple global perspectives and to prepare them to be global citizens.
On completion of the course, students should be able to
1) provide real-life examples of social and cultural diversity;
2) demonstrate their multicultural awareness and appreciation;
3) use idiomatic expressions acquired in the course; and
4) express their opinions on diversity issues more confidently.
