Abstract:

This paper examines the Global Learning for Engaged Citizenship Model for internationalizing the curriculum designed by faculty at Kennesaw State University. The model incorporates standard methods such as study abroad and incorporation of global content within existing courses to more creative means that employ online technology and a global certification process designed to complement the student's major.

The unique aspects of this model reflect the need to develop well articulated learning outcomes that include global perspectives (knowledge), intercultural engagement (skills), and global citizenship (attitudes). With a strong emphasis on citizenship, human rights, and sustainable development this model is ideally suited to students in political science, international affairs as well as other university majors.

To borrow from "The World is Flat" analogy, students must be adequately versed and comfortable working in a global workplace after graduation if they are to contribute to their own well-being and that of their respective country. The global learning outcomes and methods employed within the "Global Learning for Engaged Citizenship Model" provide solid global competencies for professional and personal growth in today's world as well as means to achieve these competencies.
