GLST – Global Studies

Alfred State courses are grouped into the following sections:

  • Global Topics Seminar is an interdisciplinary course intended to help prepare students to live in, work in and make sense of a multicultural world. Functioning as an introduction to diverse customs, languages and cultures, this course serves as a vehicle for students to reflect on cultures and societies outside of the United States.

  • In continuation to Global Topics Seminar I, this course focuses on global challenges that we face in the 21st century and different approaches for managing those challenges. With each class, students will be encouraged to think how civically they can act to address these challenges.
