International Studies – Rising 8th graders

While taking International Studies, you will be provided with a framework for studying the complexities of timely international issues and examining United States foreign policy.

In this class, we will pay close attention to current events, global problems, and their historical context.

We will study theories of international relations and examine international events through those lenses.

In addition to studying content and context, we will develop skills that will help us grow as empathetic and thoughtful citizens and public speakers. You will participate in regularly held discussions, debates, and simulations (to include Model UN) related to international relations.

I can’t wait to meet all of you and get started!
