Department and Program Offerings

Many departments and programs at MHC are offering courses, which explore - from their respective disciplinary vantage points - different dimensions of globalization and analyze issues and challenges whose scope transcends national boundaries.

In developing new curricular initiatives the McCulloch Center will especially promote cross-disciplinary teaching with a focus on comparative perspectives, where the challenges of a global world are interrogated in courses team-taught by two faculty members from different disciplines.
