What is Global Studies?
Global Studies is one of many programs offered at Watkinson School, in Hartford, Connecticut. Along with the music, theatre, art, and athletic programs, Global Studies gives students the opportunity to look more closely at topics and things that engage and excite them. The goal of Watkinson School is to "Give students the power to shape their lives and the world around them", in true Watkinson fashion, Global Studies encourages independent thinking and nurtures the students' ability to "shape their world". Global Studies and CAP, the Creative Arts Programs, make up Watkinson's two extra diploma programs. The goal of the Global Studies Program is to develop active, engaged global citizens. In class, students take a more global approach to things and are encouraged to view the same events from multiple diverse views.
