World101 offers a growing library of multimedia resources that explain international affairs and foreign policy issues and processes through entertaining, interactive storytelling. 

Designed for a non-specialist, but of value to those with some knowledge as well, World101 is geared towards learners both inside and outside of formal academic settings. 

The World101 library will expand over the next two years to include approximately 50 modules that fall into six units: Global Era Issues, Regions of the World, Historical Context, How the World Works (and Doesn’t Work), Approaches and Tools of Foreign Policy, and The Making of U.S. Foreign Policy. 

Understand the world and how foreign policy affects you.


Understand how the world works—the issues, the forces, the actors, and how they interact to affect people's everyday lives.
