  • Demonstrate an understanding of how global issues, processes, trends, and systems have shaped the subject of study;
  • Demonstrate the ability to use globally diverse cultural frames of reference and alternate perspectives to think critically, solve problems, or interpret issues and situations as they relate to the course topic;
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how the field of study is viewed and practiced in different cultural contexts.
