The Center for Global Studies is located on the 2nd floor of Black Hall in Suite 203. The Center oversees all aspects of international education for the college and is designed to promote a global perspective throughout the college community. Although the college has had a long history of international engagement, the current structure of the center represents the reenergizing of the commitment to internationalize the campus, including a greater centralization of international programs.
Global Studies Minor and Certificate
The minor and certificate in global studies are designed to provide interdisciplinary and global perspective on the arts, the humanities, social sciences, sciences and mathematics. They are both flexible programs that are designed to complement majors and minors across the college. The minor requires 18 credit hours; in addition, the certificate requires a capstone project, such as a significant experience or course of study in another country, a substantive research paper, and a public presentation of the paper.
The Center is a resource to faculty and staff who are traveling abroad and to visiting international faculty. An area of focus this academic year is to assist faculty who are interested in developing a course with a study abroad component. Culture courses and other enrichment activities will be scheduled throughout the year related to this aspect of the Center’s work. Bennett College regularly accepts foreign language teaching assistants. To inquire about specific foreign language teaching assistants, please contact the Center for Global Studies.
Other International Organizations, Conferences and Programs
Each year, the center coordinates a campus wide program during International Education Week. Contact the Center for Global Studies for the dates for the International Education Week programming. A full schedule of activities will be offered during the week.
We will also participate in several conferences and workshops throughout the year which are designed to provide networking opportunities and professional development specifically focused on international programs (e.g., NAFSA, North Carolina International Leadership Conference for Students) as a means of ensuring that Bennett remains on the cutting edge in the areas of global studies and internationalization.
