Did you know that Jefferson College enjoys a solid regional and statewide reputation as a leader in global education and international curriculum?
The Global Studies Program (GSP) is a specially designed curriculum to meet the needs of students who have interests in foreign language development, world cultural geography, and global issues. Transfer institutions welcome students with global and international knowledge and, in the 21st Century business environment, those with a general knowledge of international issues and the basics of second language experience far more success than those who do not. Graduates of the GSP receive a framed certificate, plus a notation on their transcript. The GSP also supports student study abroad opportunities and shares information on community college travel abroad opportunities.
The GSP consists of 16 credit hours; the following 7 credit hours are required:
- Any college level language course (3 credit hours)
- World Regional Geography (3 credit hours)
- Seminar in Global Studies (1 credit hour)
The other 9 credit hours consist of electives chosen from a list of internationalized courses.
The Jefferson College Cultural Diversity Committee oversees the Global Studies Program.
