Global Studies (GBS) courses are offered by many departments across the university. While these courses cover diverse subjects, they all provide a global dimension to each student’s education by fostering intercultural competence and by equipping students to explore their roles amid complex global forces that are intensifying the interconnectedness of our world.
Each undergraduate student must take at least one of these courses as part of the general education curriculum. Students may apply to the chair of the Global Studies committee to have this requirement waived if they are international students enrolled at High Point University for at least one semester or if they have completed an academic course of study outside the U.S. lasting at least four weeks, conducted through an accredited institution, and bearing at least 3 credits recognized by High Point University.
Students who participate in such study abroad through High Point University have the requirement waived automatically.
