Contact Core Dean Betsy Beaulieu
Are you interested in a better understanding of what's happening in the world? Do you want new opportunities to act locally, while thinking as a global citizen?
Champlain is committed to ensuring that every student receives an education that includes a global perspective. Through our 18-credit Global Studies minor, students can design their own program, including their Core and travel abroad experiences, in a way that emphasizes and extends the globally aware, culturally diverse, and critically sophisticated aspect of their education.
Any student interested in the Global Studies minor should, at the earliest possible date, arrange a meeting with Champlain's Assistant Dean for Global Engagement to discuss his or her course of study.
Every student who minors in Global Studies must take part in a significant international experience in an academic context. Examples include traditional one-semester study abroad programs and classes with an embedded travel component. Scholarships may be available for students in need of assistance.
NOTE: Global Studies is an 18-credit minor, and 12 of the credits taken to fulfill it must be unique to the minor-in other words, a student cannot count more than 6 credits to both his/her major program of study (or another minor) and the Global Studies minor.
