Bachelor of Arts in Global Citizenship

The B.A. in Global Citizenship is rooted in servant leadership and actionable empathy integrating the values of academic excellence, accountability, community and diversity, social responsibility, integrity, and creative expression. The major is designed for motivated students who:

  • recognize the worth of obtaining diverse and knowledgeable worldviews;
  • are aware of the growing interconnectedness of the world; and
  • realize the necessity of developing skills in critical and creative thinking, social, emotional, and cultural intelligence, and collaboration through diverse lenses.

The curriculum combines theory, best practice, and research; cross-cultural problem solving and dialogue around common global issues; internships in local or global settings; community service; and cultural immersion experiences.
