About the CIVIS Micro-Program “Global Awareness”
Meeting global challenges – such as issues concerning energy, the climate and the environment – is a core aspiration of the European Higher Education network CIVIS. As members, the University of Bucharest, the Autonomous University of Madrid and the University of Tübingen now offer a joint program on Global Awareness.
It provides in-depth knowledge of globalization and cross-border processes, as well as opportunities to reflect on global interconnections and interrelationships in everyday life. Covering a broad range of topics and approaches, the courses offered in this program foster the development of inter- and trans disciplinary competencies and problem-solving skills to deal with the social, cultural, economic, legal, political and ecological problems of our time, preventing racism and fostering peace and understanding. In this way, students are equipped to become responsible actors in a globalized world.
The Micro-Program is structured in four parts (15 credits):
- Introductory Courses
- Thematic Courses
- Student Research Projects
- Joint Projects with Partner Universities
