BRICS Today: A Mini-Course


As global citizens, students need to have a working knowledge of other countries, which are important in shaping the corporate, social and political world. The mini-courses offered at Pitt and CMU focus on rising states in the world economy, namely Brazil, India, China, Russia and South Africa (BRICS.)

To meet student interests and time constraints, The University Center for International Studies at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University collaborate to offer intensive courses on topics of interest, taught by expert faculty, with lectures from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon, followed by a research paper. The courses are 1 credit hour or 3 units for CMU students, with about 14 hours of lectures and an expected 30 hours of work for the paper.

These courses are also open and free to the K-12 teaching community, business and community members.
