Global Studies Degree Designation

The Global Studies Degree Designation is a campus- wide opportunity for students to gain knowledge about global issues and multicultural influences while earning any MCCC degree. The Global Studies Degree Designation is earned while pursuing the
degree of choice.

Most of the requirements of the Global Studies Degree Designation can be met while the student pursues their chosen degree requirements as stated in their chosen degree program or transfer guidelines. Students accomplish this by selecting particular courses to meet their graduation, departmental and distribution course requirements, in addition to selecting particular elective courses. Courses that meet these requirements are designated in the MCCC College Catalog as “Global Studies Course.”

To complete the requirements for the Global Studies Degree Designation, students must also take a Global Studies Orientation Course (one credit); meet with a Global Studies advisor; participate in at least three extra-curricular global activities; and compose a global/international résumé.
