The global skills certificate, offered through the Center for International Studies, is designed to assist students to understand and appreciate the impact of international affairs on their daily lives.
Students completing the certificate learn to value different cultures, and political and economic systems and are familiarized with the numerous international connections that exist between countries through trade, diplomacy, international organizations, and communication technology.
