Great Decisions – 2019

February 13 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Do you want to know the story behind the biggest stories in global news? Join America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. Each year the Foreign Policy Association selects eight critical issues, and this year the topics range from nuclear security to U.S. – China trade to the rise of populism in Europe. Read a chapter in the briefing book at home, then watch a televised segment at the start class before diving into a spirited discussion of the most critical global issues facing America today. The textbook required for this class, Great Decisions, is available online and at the Lourdes bookstore for $32.
