Program Overview

This program is designed to help students from a wide variety of academic backgrounds to apply their learning to international, global and intercultural situations. Students will reflect on their existing international awareness; achieve recognition for formal learning which has been applied in an international or intercultural context; document the knowledge, skills and attitudes developed during an international placement; and summarize their achievements in a portfolio and/or presentation. The program is available in two streams to accommodate the learning needs of two distinct groups of learners:  

  1. Canadian-based students developing their global learning in international/intercultural placements/li>
  2. Internationally-based students developing their global learning in Canada

Both groups of learners will develop increased awareness of and appreciation for intercultural differences and the effects of globalization on their fields of study. Learning activities will be delivered in a variety of ways, including self-directed study, mentoring, distance delivery, volunteer placement, internship, study abroad or field school experience, journaling, and face-to-face classes where appropriate.  


This program includes blended, online, or face-to-face delivered courses specific to global studies, credit for courses completed elsewhere, and an international or intercultural volunteer placement, internship, study abroad, or field school component.

Admission Requirements
