International Study Program - Global Citizenship: America and the World

ISP 13

Abstract

In an age of new international tensions and shifting global alliances, the need for

Americans to understand international affairs, to recognize cultural values other than their

own, and to view world events from a variety of perspectives, has become increasingly

critical.

 

In response to this need, the Salzburg Seminar has developed the International

Study Program (ISP). The purpose of the program is to provide an intensive seven-day

international experience for students to explore pressing issues of global concern and to

view such issues from a perspective outside the United States.

Students will acquire the knowledge and skills to better understand and interpret

the international political order, the global economy, and worldwide social developments.

It is intended that this program will make students more aware of global issues

and of what it means to be a "global citizen", more discerning in their assessment of

information pertaining to world affairs, and more understanding of America's place in the

world as well as of non-Americans' perceptions of the US.

 

This ISP session is offered to students of U.S. community colleges.
