Through the graduate and undergraduate certificate program, students develop an awareness of major currents of global change and the issues it raises, the capacity for effective communication across cultural and linguistic boundaries, and personal adaptability to diverse cultures. Students choose one of six global concentrations (Changing identities in a global world; Communication, technology and society; Conflict and conflict resolution; Global economy and global governance; Global Health; and Sustainable development) and unite it with a study of a particular region and language.
