Roots of Contemporary Issues [ROOT]: Course List
Roots of Contemporary Issues is among the first courses students will take at WSU. It provides a strong intellectual foundation for college learning upon which students can build for the rest of their careers by introducing students to five of the university’s seven learning goals: critical and creative thinking; information literacy; communication; diversity, and integration of learning. The course accomplishes this through an examination of the history of global issues that affect human life on the planet in the 21st century, including environmental change, globalization, inequality, competing systems of knowledge, and conflict. The course includes multiple cultural, political, and disciplinary perspectives so that students engage with the diversity of the human experience, across both time and space.
