The objective of the course, broadly stated, is to introduce BMOS students to the academic disciplines of the social sciences by investigating in a multi-disciplinary fashion the theme of " globalization ." In Management and Organizational Studies 020a/b, first-year BMOS students will become acquainted with different academic disciplines represented in the Faculty of Social Science such as Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. Each of these disciplines can help to equip students with the array of communications, research, and analytical skills crucial to succeeding in today’s highly competitive and complex business environment. In addition, familiarity with the approaches and methods of the social sciences will enable BMOS students to make informed choices when selecting course options or developing sub-concentration "theme" areas in the following three years of their program. Secondly, and more specifically, the course investigates the theme of “ globalization ,” an important yet controversial subject surrounded by much misunderstanding and debate. Students will be presented with a wide array of perspectives on globalization, ranging from the historical organization of the global economy to the emergence of global politics and culture in our own time. In the process, students will be encouraged to develop their own interpretations of the many and varied challenges and opportunities that globalization presents, always basing their opinions on the rigorous tests of evidence and analysis that are integral to the social sciences. The class meets three times per week (two 50-minute lectures; one 50-minute tutorial). Course prerequisite : Enrolment in the BMOS Program. Course grading:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
