of being a global citizen in the 21st century.
Spotlight: Global Citizenship
This interdisciplinary course critically examines the conceptual and theoretical foundations of global citizenship and investigates how it might work in practice. Throughout the semester, students across the Bard network engage and collaborate, creating a dynamic cross-cultural conversation about the potential for and limitations of global citizenship.
What does is mean to be a global citizen?
“A global citizen cares for real people—not people in the abstract, not humanity in general, but real people to whom he or she makes a pact of solidarity that hardship and difficulty can’t break.”
—Michael Ignatieff, President, Central European University
