About the Certificate
As society, political systems, and economies become interrelated global systems, the need for global awareness is increasingly important. Students, regardless of academic and social background, need international awareness and experience to be successful members in our global society. Many businesses, graduate schools, and organizations give priority to applicants who have significant international and foreign language experience. Knowledge of global cultures is also personally fulfilling, giving way to new perspectives, international contacts, and even lifelong friends. View the Certificate Requirements.
The goal of the Global Perspectives Certificate is to recognize students for their international studies and activities, and to encourage students to continue their global interests both overseas and within the United States. All undergraduate degree-seeking students and all majors are welcome, including undergraduate international students.
The certificate allows students to document academic, professional, and extra-curricular international involvement for future scholarship opportunities, employers, and graduate schools. Upon completion, students will receive an official certificate and a notation on their transcript documenting their global experiences during their studies.
