Global Awareness (G)
Definition and rationale:
The goal of the Global Awareness requirement is twofold. Because the human world is increasingly interconnected and interdependent, graduates of the University of Wyoming should have acquired knowledge of the global organization and interdependence of human societies. Because citizens ever more frequently encounter behaviors and practices based on beliefs, conditions, and assumptions different from their own, they need to understand the nature and function of culture. Our students should have an awareness of the multiple links that affect the living conditions and range of action of peoples of the world, including international systems of commerce, art, science, technology, politics, communication, belief, and justice, among others.
