What are the roots of injustice? How do we heal a world that is more connected, yet more divided, than ever?
The global engagement component of the Brandeis Core explores social, political, cultural and linguistic diversity in the United States and the world by focusing on three thematic areas, listed below.
How to fulfill the global engagement requirements
- Analyze the historical and contemporary relationships between and within societies, institutions, regions and peoples in English-speaking North America and in the world at large.
- Understand dynamics of social difference, including power, privilege, prejudice, discrimination, inequality, injustice, identities and political and environmental changes.
- Understand the histories, cultures, expressions and experiences of historically marginalized peoples in the U.S. and in the world.
- Explore linguistic and cultural competence beyond one’s own culture.
