The international location of this unit will allow students to refine both their leadership skills and their intercultural awareness.


Upon successful completion of the unit, students will be able to:

  1. apply interdisciplinary methods to a range of contemporary regional and/or global challenges;
  2. independently construct approaches to understanding to a range of contemporary regional and/or global challenges;
