Global Initiatives

Courses with a Global Perspective

UW Bothell's undergraduate learning goals, adopted during summer 2012, include:

  • understanding of diversity in cultures, identities, backgrounds, and experiences among individuals and groups, and
  • critical analysis of information from multiple perspectives including intercultural, global, and ecological.

Innovative, interdisciplinary courses that incorporate a global perspective can be found across the UW Bothell curriculum:
