Globalization and the Making of the Modern World
Credit Hours:

This course explores why the global economy operates the way it does.  It provides a broad overview of the discourse and politics of “globalization,” and then examines two critical processes that shaped the contemporary global economy’s emergence: 19th century imperialism and the 20th and 21st century actions of transnational corporations.
