  26. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service? This seminar is the required capstone course for all students enrolled in the graduate certificate in globalization studies.

  29. Objectives: Many disciplines are generating research on globalization. Many issues related to globalization are researched from particular disciplinary perspectives. Although disciplinary-based research on globalization and issues related to it has implications for research from other disciplines, formal opportunities to address these implications are rare. The purpose of this seminar to provide students in the globalization studies certificate program or the political science/international relations track with such an opportunity. This seminar is offered for students who have already completed preliminary research on some aspect of globalization. The purpose of this seminar is to offer these students an opportunity to review and revise their research within the context of the most recent published research in fields related to the studentsí research.

    The seminar provides the opportunity to refine and strengthen research claims (a) by presenting research and knowledge acquired in coursework already completed in areas related to globalization; and (b) by revising globalization research projects in light of critical feedback and review of relevant research from related disciplines.
