Elective Course Groupings


Culture


Courses in the Culture category address patterns of shared and learned beliefs, perceptions, and values that are demonstrated by a society through customs, behaviors, practices, processes, and creative expressions. With permission from the Global Studies director, upper-division KCASE courses in Anthropology may be used to fulfill part or the entire Culture component.

Institutions


Courses in the Institution grouping examine organizational structures such as governments, international governmental organizations, non-governmental organizations, and multinational corporations which serve as frameworks within which individuals behave and interact with one another locally, nationally, and globally.

Markets


Courses in the Markets grouping deal primarily with how individuals, firms, non-governmental organizations, and governments engage in and make decisions regarding resource allocation and the production and distribution of goods and services.
