The Global Studies Learning Center is an intensive study of world regions, international challenges, cultures, governments, and economies. The rapid pace of globalization means that future graduates will need a more expansive study of the world, and how the United States fits into it. Students with an interest in history, international development, diplomacy, and world order will be challenged with an accelerated and unique curriculum within the comprehensive high school, studying human geography, international relations, comparative government and politics, and international law. The program’s goal is to develop a sense of responsibility to the world community and an understanding of what it means to be an active global citizen.
