Freshmen; Residential-Optional

The Global Village Learning Community is a one-year non-residential program designed to introduce freshmen to the phenomenon of globalization by means of social scientific study of societies and cultures. It is open to all students but will be of particular interest to students interested in any one of the social science majors such as Anthropology,  Sociology, and Political Science, any student interested in pursuing a career that has a global dimension, or any student interested in other peoples and cultures. Students will enroll together in a series of courses that fulfill General Education requirements and will also participate in service learning. At the end of the academic year, students are given the opportunity to travel to an international site for additional academic coursework and service learning experiences.
