Courses in the Contemporary Global Studies (CGS) CART promote critical analysis and engagement with the complex, wide-ranging global issues in the world today. These issues, explored in meaningful ways through a variety of disciplines, emphasize interdependent global systems (historical, economic, and political) as well issues related to human rights and social justice, and the impact of global business. Important goals in King's mission statement include fostering social responsibility in our students and preparing them intellectually to lead satisfying lives. King’s believes that these goals, when recognized in a global context, enhance a students’ sense of identity, community, and citizenship.
