Take an HPU Global Studies Course.
Global Studies (GBS) courses are offered by many departments across the university.  Each undergraduate student must take at least one Global Studies course as part of the general education curriculum. Equivalent courses transferred from other institutions are subject to approval by the Global Studies committee and to the university’s policies on transferred credits. 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 28 days, conducted through an accredited institution, and bearing at least 3 credits recognized by High Point University.
Participate in Study Abroad
Students who participate in an HPU study abroad program lasting at least 28 days receive Global Studies credit toward their degrees.
About Global Studies
Global Studies courses cover diverse subjects and 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 affecting the interconnectedness of our world.
