Global Understanding Courses

Global Understanding courses offer unique opportunities for FSU students to learn about global cultures in a face-to-face environment without leaving the classroom. Global Understanding courses are designed to make the most of interactive technologies to give FSU students the opportunity to collaborate with students at international partner institutions.  The cultural exchanges include asynchronous written communication as well as synchronous discussions in class with videoconference technology.

FSU students have the opportunity to enroll in two Global Understanding courses in Fall 2015:

  • HIST 120-GU1: World History since 1600 with Inner Mongolia Normal University, China; and
  • PHIL 211-GU1: Introduction to World Religions with Baotou Teachers' College, China.

FSU students enrolled in multiple Global Understanding courses in Spring 2015:

  • BADM210-GU1: Introduction to Global Business with Baotou Teachers' College, China;
  • ENGL212-GU1: World Literature II with Inner Mongolia Normal University, China;
