Global Scholar Distinction

Students who earn the Global Scholar Distinction are recognized by Georgia State University for their development of global competence: the skills, knowledge and awareness that enhance the ability to succeed in a global environment. Global Scholars can communicate across cultures, think critically about the world, adapt to new and unfamiliar situations, and market global skills to employers. The Global Scholar Distinction is open to all majors in all colleges. It opens doors to rewarding global career opportunities at home and abroad.

Students who begin taking Global Scholar courses will receive exclusive invitations to workshops to learn how to build a global portfolio and prepare for job interviews.
