    Global Studies Courses at Hamline University

    GLOB 1910 - Introduction to Global Studies

    Goals: To introduce students to the interdisciplinary field of global studies.

    Content: A focus on the history and theoretical approaches that have created global studies as a field of study. Student “consumption” of key texts introduces themes to be encountered in upper-level courses. Presentations by faculty with different disciplinary, regional/cultural, and theoretical backgrounds illustrate the interdisciplinary and global nature of the field.

    Taught: Each semester.

    Prerequisites: Open to first-year students in their second semester and open to sophomores. Juniors and seniors may register by permission of instructor or Global Studies chair.

    Credits: 4 credits

    GLOB 3020 - Interdisciplinary Research Methods

    Goals: To introduce students to interdisciplinary research methodologies and to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to carry out research in the field.
     
    Content: The course focuses on conducting research from an interdisciplinary perspective and covers questions of epistemology, ontology, and practical applications of various research methods. Students will acquire the skills necessary to approach issues or events from an interdisciplinary perspective so that they may be able to synthesize multiple fields of study into a research project, and develop sophisticated research proposals.

    Taught: Annually, in the spring semester.

    Prerequisite: GLOB 1910, declared major/minor in an interdisciplinary program, or consent of instructor

    Credits: 4 credits

    GLOB 5010 - Honors Project

    Goals: To undertake a capstone independent research project that will lead to honors in the global studies major.

    Content: A focus on the research and writing process, from conceptualization through completion. Students pursue projects on topics of individual interest but share both discussions of the research and writing process and a first draft of their honors project with other students.

    Taught: Annually, in the fall semester.

    Prerequisite: Acceptance of an honors proposal in the major.

    Credits: 6 credits

    GLOB 5900 - Senior Research Seminar

    Goals: To produce a capstone independent research product (e.g., paper, web site, media project) that demonstrates the ability to conduct interdisciplinary research and writing in global studies.

    Content: A focus on the research and writing process, from conceptualization through completion. Students pursue projects on topics of individual interest but share both discussions of the research and writing process and their final products with other students.

    Taught: Annually, in the fall semester.

    Prerequisite: Senior standing in global studies or consent of instructor.

    Credits: 4 credits
