Globally Focused Coursework

The Certificate of Global Studies shows that you have completed 12 hours of "globally focused coursework", defined as:

  • Any course for the A&S International Studies major/minor;
  • Any General Education course for Global Dynamics, at the 200+ level;
  • Any education abroad course;
  • Any foreign language course at the 300 level or above;
  • Any other courses approved by the Faculty Director because they meet the learning outcomes for Global Dynamics or International Studies courses

The Fine Print: A minimum of 6 credits must be at the 300-level or above. Additionally, you must take courses in at least two disciplines, earn a C or better in each required certificate course, and no more than nine credits can be used to satisfy other requirements.
