Jane Hirons, Head of Global Politics and Perspectives, UWCSEA Dover
Global Politics is a new IB course that was introduced to UWCSEA Dover in August 2016. Global Politics allows students to explore and develop the UWC movement's mission to "make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future".
The coursework requires students to actively engage in a political investigation so that they can better understand the complex nature of contemporary political issues. During the 2016/2017 academic year, students chose a wide range of engagement opportunities; everything from refugee resettlement to assessing the impact of NGO's on sanitation and development. All are relevant issues in today's increasingly interconnected society. Click below to read the student reflections :
