PROGRAM FRAMEWORK AND REQUIREMENTS

The following is a checklist and brief description of the Global Studies Program framework and requirements.  Students who complete the program will receive a designation on their diploma and transcripts.


1.        Global Coursework (15 credits)
Each student must complete 15 credits of designated Global Studies courses with a grade of C or higher. Professors must apply to have their courses qualify for the program, so course offerings may change from semester to semester. The current list of courses for each academic year is posted on the Global Studies Courses website.

NOTE:

  • Only five (5) credits from first or second year foreign language courses can be used to fulfill this requirement.
  • All study abroad courses are globalized.

 

2.       Global Resume/Portfolio
Each student creates a resume or portfolio that records and highlights program experiences. This is submitted to the Career Services Office and the Global Studies Program Committee for approval during the student’s final semester in the program. A portfolio rubric will be provided in the Canvas program section.
