Set on the beautiful island of Aigina, this program offers students the opportunity to work with members of the local community on an impact project. We will study the global challenges ahead and will be able to engage in a hands-on project to address those challenges. Global Futures is a capstone course for the Global Studies minor, bridging Drury's general education program with a student's major. The course explores globalization, assesses social and environmental issues, and investigates models for a sustainable future. Drawing on diverse voices, traditions and disciplines, the course helps students integrate personal and professional strategies to become reflective and engaged global citizens. In this course we will identify and explore our role in addressing global challenges. We will consider responsibility both personally and at corporate levels. We will discuss how global challenges require claiming responsibility. We will have an opportunity to actively engage in a service-learning project working with residents of Aigina to make a social impact.
