Learning Objectives & Outcomes

The Global Scholars Leadership Program is offered to all majors as a way to provide students with a competitive advantage in the world marketplace. The curricular components of the program allow students to engage in global affairs in the classroom, facilitating the development of cultural fluency and global awareness; the co-curricular components of the program engage the student outside the classroom, helping them to feel part of a cohesive group on campus.

The study abroad component provides the opportunity to work closely with individuals from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, as does working with international students on campus. Learning an advanced level of a foreign language provides exposure to other cultures and ways of thinking, enhancing the liberal arts education and global citizenship mission of Emory & Henry. The leadership components of the program empower students and provide them with leadership skills that serve them well in any profession.

A global scholar leader develops experiences and skills that are sought by employers in the 21st century. The program will be of particular interest to students in Business, International Studies, Politics, Law & International Relations, Foreign Languages, Sociology, Economics, Psychology, and Pre-health.
