Freshman Seminar

The freshmen seminar introduces students to the interdisciplinary approach to International Studies. The central objective of the seminar is to equip the students with enough background of disciplines ranging from international politics, history, geography, economy, to culture in order for them to fully understand the complexity and the connectivity of contemporary world events.

The seminar is structured around student participation with individual and group projects during the course of the semester. The focus of the student work is based on contemporary and recent historical international issues and conflicts, so as to develop a deeper understanding of the problems facing various regions of the world.
