Global Perspectives Graduation Requirement
Living in an interconnected global society requires an appreciation of the complexity and interdependency of world events and issues. Undergraduate education at TWU aims to broaden students’ perspectives, expand the boundaries of their conversations, and provide them opportunities to recognize and understand other worldviews. To meet this goal, all undergraduates who enroll at TWU beginning fall 2007 or thereafter, must complete a global perspectives requirement. A global perspective refers to skills, knowledge, and attitudes in areas such as global dynamics, non-western worldviews, international systems and events, and global cultures. To meet this requirement, students may either complete three credit hours of courses that have been approved for their global perspective, complete a major in which the global perspective competencies are integrated across the curriculum and is approved for global perspectives designation, or complete global perspectives approved courses in international study or independent study. These methods of achieving global perspectives may be combined when appropriate, and students will be encouraged to pursue as many opportunities as their degree programs allow. Courses approved for global perspectives are listed on the Academic Affairs website, and may be identified online in the Course Search through WebAdvisor.
