Global Engagement

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.

Learning Goals

Exploration, Understanding, Pluralism: Spring 2020 Courses

At Brandeis, you are encouraged to learn about a wide variety of human societies, cultures, and countries and about causes and consequences of differences among racial, ethnic, religious, and other groups. Listed below are a sampling of the Spring 2020 courses that address these issues; we hope that you will consider including some of them in your studies. They are grouped under “Religion, Race, and Culture,” “Global Perspectives,” and “Gender and Sexuality” though naturally many of the courses intersect these groupings. For additional course offerings, please refer to the registrar’s website.
