Global Awareness

Blue circle with a person whose head is a globeThere are over seven billion people living in the world today. These seven billion people, though similar, have a variety of different beliefs, customs, and cultures. Courses in Global Awareness are designed to provide students with knowledge of the vast world we live in and the inhabitants we share it with. Students take courses in two sub-groups—Culture and Foreign Languages—which teach them skills needed to navigate a global environment and become culturally-minded, understanding individuals who can better experience the beauty the world has to offer.
