Global Understanding

In the Global Understanding courses, students work with peers from two – three partner institutions around the world for approximately 4 – 6 weeks each. Bi-weekly video conference discussions, chats, and collaborative student projects provide personal, global experiences that promote cross-cultural understanding as students build intercultural communication and collaboration skills.

Global Understanding courses are offered through a number of departments. Most courses fulfill either a SOC or HUM general education requirement and Global Diversity requirement.
