Entering students begin their Global Citizenship Program (GCP) coursework with the First-Year Seminar. Taught by faculty members from a wide range of academic disciplines, these seminars introduce students to some of the essential problems and methodologies of scholarly inquiry they will confront and develop throughout their studies.
In addition to GCP-coded courses within their own major field of study, students take coursework in the fields of philosophy, sociology, history, literature, science and the arts in order to strengthen their understanding of specific knowledge areas and skills sets essential to developing critical, creative and innovative ways of approaching pressing contemporary issues.
To further integrate theory and practice and better prepare students for real-world problems, students complete their GCP coursework with a Global Keystone Seminar, a unique opportunity to apply the kind of multi-disciplinary, integrative learning methods so central to a liberal arts education.
The most recent Global Citizenship Bulletin details academic opportunities new to the 2017-2018 academic year that students are encouraged to consult in order to plan their GCP and liberal arts-based coursework.
