A BRIEF HISTORY

Cosumnes River College is pleased to announce the creation of its Global Studies Program. Starting in 2005, founding faculty members Martin Morales (international relations), Maureen Moore (humanities) and Rosalie Amer (humanities, history and library science) - all internationalists - began discussion on the need to create a program that would serve Cosumnes River College, its students and the community. Over the course of the next four years, they created the Global Studies Program.

The Global Studies Program offers courses of study in Latin America, the Pacific Rim, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia and Southeast Asia.  Students are encouraged to take region specific courses in the humanities, geography, economics and cultural anthropology in addition to completing an appropriate foreign language course at an accredited institution.  By doing so, students will transfer with a significant understanding of a selected region.

This website has been created to give you an overview of the Global Studies Program and its various components. It includes a list of courses and scheduled offerings; it lists majors and careers served by Global Studies majors as well as associated on campus programs and series. This website includes information about student publications and associations and faculty biographies, too.

COURSE OFFERINGS

CRC's Global Studies Program is part of an interdisciplinary program incorporating courses and faculty from social sciences, language, arts and the humanities.

Business is rapidly becoming international. Businesses are attempting to recruit people in both the manufacturing and service sectors who can travel, plan and communicate effectively in the global environment. Businesses also seek to hire employees who can interact productively and positively with the diverse subcultures represented in today's workplaces, particularly those in California.

The Global Studies Program offerings rotate to ensure maximum variety for students. In an effort to increase student knowledge and awareness on upcoming regions, a parallel film and lecture series presents relevant, issue-oriented global topics. Students are encouraged to check the departmental calendar every semester for a complete listing of events.
