Global education provides for the study of international issues within a multidisciplinary framework. An education that focuses on the interdependence of communities fuels a student's ability to contribute to important decision-making processes. This endorsement is designed as an introduction to cultural, political, and economic perspectives of processes at the global level.
Within this endorsement are three areas of concentrations:
- Global Citizenship Concentration
- Policy and Conservation Concentration
- Social Entrepreneurship Concentration
Each concentration outlines a different set of courses for completion of the endorsement and is usually associated with a course of study to be pursued once the student reaches the university setting. While students might take some courses in each of the areas of concentration, ultimately at least one concentration must be chosen in order to earn the endorsement. More than one concentration may be achieved with careful planning. It is strongly suggested that students meet with a Global Studies advisor to best determine the courses that will form this educational foundation.
