Globalization has affected the world in many ways: socially, economically, and culturally. It has also affected the education system as well as the daily life of individuals across the world, including the Kingdom of Morocco in North Africa. This paper will explore the success of a globally focused education in the Moroccan context, as well as, analyze the affect that globalization has had among the Moroccan youth, specifically university students. Additionally, how aware are the students of the current events that are unfolding in our global community. How has globalization affected their preferences and their perceptions towards global issues and current events? In order to analyze such areas that include the topics of geography, history, religion, political science, as well as current events, questionnaires were administered to Moroccan university students studying at the Mohammed V University in Rabat, Morocco. The results reveal valuable insights into the country’s educational systems and cultural values as well as the major role that globalization has made in the daily lives of individuals all across the world. It reveals the importance of living in an interdependent world and what it really means to raise global citizens.
