New SFSU course on the U.S. and world affairs, open to the public, launches tomorrow

San Francisco State University opens up a new class to all who are interested in understanding the complex state of international policy and public affairs.

"The United States and the World in the 21st Century" is a new, two-credit class that is also open to the public as a lecture series. It is designed to help students and the public better understand the U.S.'s policies and use of military intervention in the increasingly complex and volatile environment post-9/11 and post-Iraq war. Global conflicts in the Korean Peninsula, the Middle East, Africa, South America and Europe as well as new developments will be examined and discussed.

The public is invited free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis, or can register for the full course through the SFSU College of Extended Learning, at (415) 405-4321 and get college credit for getting up to speed on world affairs.

7 to 9 p.m. Thursday evenings, Aug. 28 through Dec. 11, 2003, Humanities Auditorium, San Francisco State University, 1600 Holloway at 19th Avenue, San Francisco.

The fourteen sessions will be taught by faculty from the SFSU College of Behavioral and Social Sciences and the College of Humanities, who have expertise in foreign policy, history, terrorism and nation-building. Sessions moderators are David Fischer, former Ambassador and SFSU Diplomat-in-Residence; Joel Kassiola, Dean of the SFSU College of Behavioral and Social Sciences; and Marjorie Seashore, Associate Dean, SFSU College of Behavioral and Social Sciences.
