Global Studies Students Attend Seminars at Princeton University

Students in the Global Studies Magnet Program at Freehold Township High School attended seminars at Princeton University on November 30th. The juniors and seniors in attendance engaged in round table discussions and lectures on United States foreign policy in the Middle East.  The high school has formed a partnership with the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University, which allows upperclassmen to attend events there during the school year.

The Global Studies Magnet Program 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 what roles the United States plays in 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 goal of the program is to develop a sense of responsibility to the world community and an understanding of what it means to be an active global citizen.
