GL125: The Individual in a Global Society


Understanding the perspectives of others starts with understanding ourselves, so in GL125, students have the opportunity to reflect on their own values and goals as they become fully integrated into the Wilmington College Community. In addition, the class looks at global issues from the point of view of the four areas of thought and expression: natural science, social science, humanities, and fine arts. Towards the end of the semester students work on academic planning and choose the next stage of their global education: the global module. GL125 is required of all first-time freshmen, students with PSEO credit, and transfers with fewer than 30 hours.
