Lower Division CertificateGlobal Studies12/21/2017
Global Studies Program Description
The proposed certificate combines the exposure to broad global issues, world language, and intercultural immersion and requires demonstration of skills necessary to work in the evolving global economy.  This certificate is primarily geared toward students who are degree­ seeking, however, students are also eligible for this certificate early in their higher education, independent of a degree, as an engaging start to a future in any career in the global workforce. With the exception of the global immersion requirement, the certificate will be an online learning option, a focus of CCBCs commitment to students' completion of a credential, commitment to learning, and innovative programming that promotes inclusiveness.
