Global Perspectives

Global Perspectives courses are designed to introduce students to the opportunities and challenges of living in an increasingly globalized world. As the St. Thomas Strategic Plan notes, our world is “marked by social, cultural, political, technological and economic interdependence and integration across local, national and international boundaries”; thus “understanding and integrating global knowledge, perspectives and intercultural competencies is essential to living, working and serving.”

The study of and dialogue with world cultures is central to the idea of a Catholic university. Ex Corde Ecclesiae, for example, calls for an impartial search for truth, “a search that is neither subordinated to nor conditioned by particular interests of any kind.” It exhorts Catholic universities to “become more attentive to the cultures of the world today” and to realize that various diverse cultures provide “a wealth for the whole of the human family.” [Ex Corde Ecclesiae, 7, 45]

A course may satisfy GP and the Integrations in the Humanities requirement; however, a single course cannot satisfy both GP and a core-area requirement (other than Integrations in the Humanities) for the same student.

Students must take four credits.

Some sections of a course may carry the GP flag while others do not. Students should use ClassFinder to determine which course sections satisfy the GP requirement in the term for which you are completing the requirement. 

A study abroad course which spends 20 days abroad (including travel days) will automatically meet the GP requirement (such a study abroad course may also meet another core-area requirement).

International students are counted as having satisfied the Global Perspectives requirement.

What is now termed by mainstream scholars and activists as the "refugee crisis" is a subject that calls for serious study. In terms of sheer numbers, the problem is a substantial one. Conservative estimates put the current number of displaced people at over 80 million. However, the concerns of this course will go far beyond the numbers themselves. This course will provide historical and political context for this contemporary crisis. Supplemented by theoretical works such as Alicia Schmidt Camacho’s MIGRANT IMAGINARIES: LATINO CULTURAL POLITICS IN THE U.S.-MEXICO BORDERLANDS, Nicholas De Genova and Martina Tazzioli’s edited EUROPE/CRISIS: NEW KEYWORDS OF “THE CRISIS” IN AND OF “EUROPE,” and Agnes Woolley's CONTEMPORARY ASYLUM NARRATIVES, we will explore attempts by a variety of writers, such as Rabih Alameddine, Edwidge Danticat, Omar El Akkad, Jenny Erpenbeck, Yuri Herrera, Dina Nayeri, and Viet Than Nguyen, among others, to capture the many facets of refugees’ lives. We will also examine other representative texts, such as the film HUMAN FLOW by Ai Wei Wei and the music of MIA. This course satisfies a WAC Writing to Learn requirement and the Global Perspectives requirement. It also satisfies a Diversity Literature requirement for English and English with a Professional Writing Emphasis majors. Prerequisite: ENGL 121 or 190.

Theology courses numbered 221-229+300 are reserved for students on the new core curriculum. This section examines how technology shapes our identities and our relationships with nature, other people, and the transcendent. Does technology bring us closer to the natural world or make it harder to experience it? Does it help or hinder our relationships with other people and with God? We’ll look at historical examples, such as the impact of electric lights, and current technologies, like virtual reality and prosthetic enhancements of the body. The course readings will include a range of voices from Christian theology, from ancient to modern times, that offer insight on sharing a meaningful human life with others and discerning the presence of the divine in work, leisure, silence, and the natural world.

This section involves an examination of the views of various religions and ideologies on issues of justice and peace, with special attention to the Catholic and other Christian teachings on such issues as war and peace, violence, economic justice, the environment, criminal justice, and social justice.

In addition to Christianity, students will study (at least) one far eastern worldview (e.g. Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism), one tribal religion (Native American, African), Islam, and one secular worldview (e.g. Marxism, capitalism, secular humanism).

This course will explore various approaches to God and God's relationship to humankind, including perspectives written by people traditionally on the margins of theological research. A central question for this section will be how God responds to injustice. This course explores the role of scripture, history, tradition and experience in the understanding of God. It examines both old and new theologies, asking key theological questions such as, “What difference does it make how people picture God?” “How could a good God create a world where evil and suffering are possible?” or “If God has a plan for the world, are we free to make our own choices?”

Theology courses numbered 221-229+300 are reserved for students on the new core curriculum. This course attempts to offer a brief introduction to the fields of comparative theology and religious studies by studying various approaches to and conceptions of religion. At the end of the course, it will be important for students to have a grasp on the historical timeline, key figures, common texts and practices of each of the traditions covered throughout the semester. The main concern of the course is for students to develop a greater understanding of and appreciation for how religion is embedded in all dimensions of human experience, meaning that religion, despite the emphasis in the West, is not simply a matter of private beliefs, but has implications for our public life together. We will engage both historical and contemporary events as we attempt to understand how religion both shapes and is shaped by the political, cultural and social dimensions of our world.

This course provides an investigation into the ways in which Catholicism is inherently social and ecclesial. Its specific focus is on the Christian engagement with the world. The course's framework will be taken from the analysis of society into three spheres of action (culture, politics, and economics) as described in Centesimus annus. We will examine the ways that Revelation, the sacramental life, and the teachings of the Church call Catholics to seek holiness and to witness to their faith in the world. Specific topics may include social and economic justice, politics and public policy, lay and religious apostolates, education, and marriage and family. Course materials may include resources from philosophy, theology, history, economics, and political science.

Theology courses numbered 221-229+300 are reserved for students on the new core curriculum. This section involves an examination of the views of various religions and ideologies on issues of justice and peace, with special attention to the Catholic and other Christian teachings on such issues as war and peace, violence, economic justice, the environment, criminal justice, and social justice. Special attention is given to how fundamental presuppositions and principles of each group studied affect their views on justice and peace, and contribute to or hinder dialogue and peaceful interaction with other groups. In addition to Christianity, students will study (at least) one far eastern worldview (e.g. Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism), one tribal religion (Native American, African), Islam, and one secular worldview (e.g. Marxism, capitalism, secular humanism). Students are required to investigate one worldview in depth through a semester-long research project.

Theology courses numbered 221-229+300 are reserved for students on the new core curriculum. The literature of early Christianity is filled with ambiguity concerning women's role in the churches and in the story of salvation. Women's subordination was justified on the basis of Eve's role in bringing evil and sin into the world. At the same time, women were presented as heroines and models of the ideal Christian life. They held roles of leadership within early church communities, even while early church writers argued against their right to do so. This course will examine a wide range of primary texts by and about women in the early Christian churches in order to explore the relationship between faith and culture as the context for understanding women's role and status in the early church. It will also look at ways in which these texts might be relevant for the modern context.
