Global Scholars Program

The Global Scholars program provides Western New England University students with the opportunity to distinguish themselves by developing an understanding of another region or nation outside of the United States through university coursework and international study experiences. While the structure of each Global Scholars program is determined and overseen by the College in which the student is enrolled, all Global Scholars programs include the following elements:
  • An introductory experience or course
  • A period or periods of international study abroad
  • Completion of a sequence of courses in international issues, area studies, or foreign language
  • An integrating or capstone experience or course
Each Global Scholars program includes activities that may be used to satisfy university-wide Learning Beyond the Classroom (LBC) requirements. In addition, all Global Scholars are encouraged to participate in other globally-focused opportunities on campus.

Additional details regarding specific Global Scholars requirements are provided in each College’s catalogue section: College of Arts and Sciences and College of Business, the College of Arts and Sciences Special Academic Opportunities and the College of Business Special Academic Opportunities sections, or the College of Arts and Sciences, and College of Business web sites.
