Global Honors Pathways

Main page content

Students may pursue one of three pathways: Minor in Global Engagement, Global Leadership, or Global Citizenship. These are tailored to individual learning needs and combine three pillars of professional excellence - scholarly advancement, effective leadership, and community engagement. All three pathways, and especially the Global Honors distinction, considerably enhance your academic credentials and provide a competitive edge.

All students are encouraged to consider the benefits of the full Minor in Global Engagement, but Global Leadership and Global Citizenship provide added flexibility for those who wish to avail of our signature opportunities without overburdening a busy academic schedule. Students pursuing the Minor in Global Engagement are strongly encouraged to consider the benefits of the Bamford Fellowship in Global Engagement.
