English - Free topic 6: Global America

Course content

This 15ECTS-course examines America’s role in the world. At issue is the interplay of national, international, regional, and global changes. A global America is not as state-centric because it relies on a mixed-actor model that moves away from independence toward interdependence. A global America goes from domestic to transnational and helps move the world from international anarchy toward global norms and governance.  There are two fundamental questions: 1) What roles do the US play in the system of world order? And 2) How does the US navigate its foreign and domestic policy to transcend the nation’s borders and the populist nationalism that is always around to claim “America First”.

Classes, with particular emphasis on reading primary and secondary texts, oral discussion and developing proficiency in English.

This course only leads to exams Free Topic 4 with Written and Oral Proficiency in English.
