Title: What does it mean to be a global citizen?
As stipulated by the university, one of Drexel's learning goals in GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP. There are multiple courses in various discipline which equip Drexel students with the skills and knowledge to understand global economic, political and social interaction. However, there seem to be very few courses which help students understand how these interactions are affected by multiple beliefs, values and behaviors. The intent of the research would be to determine exactly which courses have a focus on intercultural understanding, to develop a survey which would provide information as to how Drexel students define global citizenship, and to determine as to whether further course development is necessary to enhance students' global citizenship competence.
