In this cluster, students are encouraged to be active learners in and beyond the classroom. This part of the GE program is flexible in several ways. You can choose a semester-long study abroad program to satisfy the Global Study portion, engage in experiential learning related to global issues or to citizenship and community, or choose from a menu of courses in each area. Students complete a total of 12 credits in three areas.
You can use courses in these areas to learn more about a topic, culture, language, or other interest. Remember that many courses are approved in more than one GE category, and so you can explore an area of interest in Global Study, for example, and then decide to study it in further depth through an Inter/Multidisciplinary Cluster or through a study abroad program. You may then apply the completed course to a different GE category.
Review your course options in each of the Global Citizen Cluster categories, visit the Center for Global Education, and consult the Career Development Center’s Internship Guide for relevant internship opportunities. Experiential learning projects must be pre-approved by the GE Committee.
