For Students

Enrollment in one of GSC's academic programs offers undergraduate and graduate students a stimulating interdisciplinary resource to enhance their curricular and co-curricular Pitt experience. The premise of these programs is that by encompassing a wide range of academic and professional courses under one the department's five global concentrations, [Cultural Dynamics; Ecology & Sustainability; Health & Well-Being; Peace, Conflict & Security; and Politics & Economy] they will complement a student's studies, making them more employable as they gain perspective on key issues affecting people locally and globally. So, by coordinating with the GSC, students develop an individualized course of study based on both their personal and career interests. In the process, they gain access to a rich variety of extracurricular activities, including overseas projects, research conferences and symposiums, as well as career counseling, academic advising and additional information on funding opportunities.
