The Global Citizen Experiential Ed Course (EGC 300) allows students who have studied abroad through the International Programs Office to fulfill one of the two course requirements for upper-division general education. The course includes preparing a paper and making a presentation of that paper to a relevant campus audience (in a course or as part of a co-curricular event).
The paper and associated presentation should incorporate both research and reflection and demonstrate achievement of the EGC outcomes, which are as follows:
- Develop an awareness of global relationships by:
- Exploring the interconnections of global environments, systems, and cultures.
- Exploring the interface between the responsibilities among the individual, local community, and the global community.
- Critically analyze and address global problems or topics using knowledge of diverse cultural perspectives.
- Synthesize knowledge from multiple disciplines to address specific global problems or topics.
- Demonstrate advanced skills in oral and written communication and critical thinking.
A successful EGC 300 paper and presentation will earn 3 credits.
