Each year, North Central College turns its attention to a particular global issue in order to examine it in the cultures of particular regions of the world. This year, the College begins a new 3-year series, "Globalization". Several classes across the curriculum will be devoting attention to this focus, while co-curricular events (lectures, films, concerts, and art exhibits) will take place each term. Students are encouraged to enroll in these specially designated classes, many of which fulfill general education requirements.

Courses in Globalization

Each year, the College turns its attention to one culture, theme, or region of the world, encouraging students to take courses and participate in activities related to that focus. For 2015-16, Globalization will continue to be the focus of this collaboration.  Students may choose courses that will consider globalization from a variety of disciplinary perspectives including economics, education, English, global students, health/physical education, history, interdisciplinary studies, modern & classical languages, political science, psychology, sociology/anthropology, and Spanish.
