Global Scholars Program

The Global Scholars (GS) program seeks to provide a rigorous international education, which develops each student’s potential to become a responsible and effective global citizen. We will graduate students who are well informed on issues of global importance, whose actions can make a positive difference on issues of global significance, who have an understanding of diverse cultures, who are skilled in the art of inter-cultural collaboration and global leadership, and who can effectively communicate in at least one world language.

The Global Scholars program is a three-year elective course of study revolving around four key components: curricular, extracurricular, service learning, and a cross-cultural exchange.
