GLOBAL STUDIES PROGRAM
Summer Reading- 2021
Our work in Global Studies is deeply rooted in promoting human rights. Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson will provide important historical context to understand the role of race, class, and caste in society.
LIVE, LEARN AND LEAVE A MARK AT WATKINSON SCHOOL
Engaging students in service and academic learning at home and abroad, interdisciplinary, and housed in an environmentally-efficient building, Watkinson’s Global Studies program embodies the school’s mission to develop in students “the power to shape their lives and the world around them.” Learn More
Global Studies Events
"An overarching theme throughout all of the events I attended this trimester seemed to be a call for love and compassion for all, and a plea for open dialogue and respect for all viewpoints." Sam V '18, Global Studies Diploma Student
The goal of the Global Studies Program is to develop active, engaged global citizens. To expose ourselves to new ideas and opinions, we host speakers at Watkinson School, Skype with experts around the world and travel to talks, plays, conferences and more. Check out our full list of events this year.
