Critical Cultures Summer Institute
The Critical Cultures Summer Institute (CCSI) highlights a different, less-commonly taught cultural area of the globe each summer, providing up to 9 credits of upper-division coursework, along with GLOBAL 2301, the anchor course for UTA's Critical Languages and International Studies (CLIS) major, for a total of 12 credits. All four courses may be used toward fulfilling requirements for the major.
GLOBAL 2301 will provide an introduction to global studies and couple with GLOBAL 3301 and 3302 in such areas as language and civilization, film, media, or other subjects of global study. An introductory class in Localization and Translation will also be offered under the aegis of the Summer Institute as GLOBAL 3310.
GLOBAL 3301, 3302, and 3310 will fulfill three of the four international studies courses required for the BA in Critical Languages and Global Studies. GLOBAL 2301 is also a requirement for the degree.
Students at any level of language study may take these courses.
During the summer of 2013 we will be highlighting the Polish language and culture.
