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).

An exploration of how concepts like nature, wilderness, and landscape have been incorporated into art. Cross-cultural instances of landscape painting will be placed in their historical contexts. We will then explore artists who incorporate the land into their art, from the site-specific artists of the late twentieth century to artists addressing the ecological concerns of the present day. We will consider Chinese literati painting, European Romanticism, frontier painting and regionalism in the United States, Earthworks, and recent artistic responses to global climate change and the exploitation of natural resources. We will consider how visual arts can not only reflect but also alter societal attitudes and practices.

Modernist artists strove to find a visual language of expression appropriate to their time; yet many contemporaries found their works incomprehensible, as do many people today. An open-minded and historically informed investigation of modern art helps to make sense of it. This course will explore the history of European painting and sculpture from 1880 to 1940. It will consider the many movements that characterized modernism, such as Post-Impressionism, Symbolism, Fauvism, Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Dada, Surrealism, and Constructivism. Issues to be addressed include the rejection of tradition, the development of abstraction, the impact of World War I and its aftermath, the influence of science and technology on art, and the fate of modernism under Hitler's and Stalin's regimes. Particular attention will be paid to the theoretical underpinnings of modern art.

This course examines the ways in which state behavior is affected by international norms, international legal documents, and international organizations like the United Nations. It also looks closely at the ways in which states, individuals, and power relations shape the nature and objectives of international law and organizations. International law and organizations can be a force for good in the world; however, there is also the potential for “pathological behavior” to emerge in international organizations and their member states. This course aims to look beyond the simple explanations for IO pathologies and into the deeper causes and potential remedies for those pathologies. Prerequisite: POLS 225 or permission of the instructor.
