Global Studies

Global Studies

Global Studies courses are offered by many departments across the university.  While these courses cover diverse subjects, they share a commitment to instilling in students greater global awareness and deeper cross cultural understanding.

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 waive this requirement if they are international students enrolled for at least one semester at High Point University 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.
