The Center for Global Humanities Seminar Series CGH 490 (CRN 50404) and CGH 506 (CRN 50735) is a two-semester program designed to introduce students and members of the public to the exploration of the great issues facing humanity today. The topics range from health, national identities and minorities, religion and violence, new conceptions of the human, the future of education, and many other subjects of major relevance to the welfare of the global community. The seminars are offered by leading scholars from around the world. Each seminar will entail reading a book or other relevant material ahead of time. The entire program normally consists of eight seminars, starting in September and ending in April. Matriculated students will earn three credits at the end of each semester and, upon successful completion of the six-credit program, will be designated CGH Scholars.
