Students in this course study globalization as an ongoing, dynamic process as it affects societies, cultures, environments, communities, organizations, groups, and individuals. Debates over these effects are addressed by various theoretical perspectives, including structural-functionalism, conflict analysis, interactionism, cultural studies, and postmodernism. Issues include technological advances, free-market capitalism, cultural homogenization, national policies and programs, international relations, global institutions and organizations, social inequality, demographic trends, asocial problems, social conflicts, and opposition to globalization.
