Global Learning for Engaged Citizenship: A Model for Internationalizing the Curriculum
Unformatted Document Text:  After taking both lower and upper division international affairs major requirements, students commence a concentration of their choice.

After taking both lower and upper division international affairs major
requirements, students commence a concentration of their choice. These include
“Diplomatic and International Service,” “International Business, Economics and Policy,”
“Applied Languages,” and by fall 2008, an “Applied Global Experience.” This latter
concentration is unique because, while voluntary, it encourages students to pursue a
semester-long course of study equivalent to 15-credit hours of courses at a foreign
institution or through an approved study abroad from another U.S.-accredited program.
Some of this semester-long study can also take the form of an internship or practicum
abroad. Many of our students traditionally select 2-6 week summer study abroad, yet
faculty concluded that the semester-long approach offers a superior global learning
experience and provides greater academic depth. To attract students hesitant about
jeopardizing their grade point average by taking courses from another university’s
program, the concentration will be pass-fail. While we recognize that this approach is not
for everyone – especially our non-traditional students with family or work commitments,
it will become yet another solid option for our majors.
Certification of Global Learning

levels of global accomplishment. Students will apply for the certification in their last
year of study and submit a Global Learning Resume, or portfolio, to a global learning
