Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The purpose of the Global Studies certificate program is to provide an additional opportunity for students at UWG to gain specific training and academic experience to enable them to pursue further study and/or to gain access to employment in a variety of fields which are supported by the UWG and USG mission and goals. These include programs and courses such as Foreign Languages, Study Abroad, and the listed Global Studies courses which impart broad knowledge and foster critical understanding needed for intellectual growth, personal and social responsibility, cultural and global literacy, and life-long learning.

  • A Certificate in Global Studies must be taken with a formal degree (major) program. Course work may be taken at two-year institutions but must be completed at a four-year university.
  • A student may formally apply to enroll in the program with a GPA of 3.0 or higher and after successful completion of 30 hours of academic credit in the USG CORE requirements. Applications can be obtained from the Coordinator of the Global Studies Program.


Total: 18 Hours

* If completed in conjunction with a study abroad component, add upper level courses to fulfill required hours.
