Global Citizenship in Education Program Description
Towson University’s Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program for Global Citizenship in Education is designed to enhance the knowledge and practice of Maryland’s formal and informal educators who work to prepare children for active participation in the community, nation, and world. It is grounded in the belief that education is a universal human right in an increasingly interdependent world. The primary aim of the program is to promote globally-competent educators who can equip their K-12 students with knowledge and skills to address issues of global significance and participate in the global economy. The program is designed to accommodate students with at least a baccalaureate degree, who are interested in internationalizing school curriculum and programs.
