Global Skills Certificate1

The global skills certificate is designed to help you understand and appreciate the impact of international affairs on their daily lives.

Once you complete the certificate, you will value different cultures, political and economic systems, and understand numerous international connections that exist between countries through trade, diplomacy, international organizations, and communication technology.

 

The International Studies program provides excellent training for persons interested in a wide variety of careers, including professional positions in private businesses, government agencies, higher education, non-governmental organizations, or any institution that operates in a global context.

The International Studies program recognizes that studying abroad, working abroad or doing an internship abroad are excellent complements to the major, minor, or certificate programs and can be a rewarding and life-changing experience for any student. Incorporating study abroad into a student’s college experience enhances the value of any academic program. UW-Parkside faculty-led programs, UW-System study abroad programs, and affiliated study abroad programs, once approved, can count toward elective credits in the International Studies major. Study abroad programs can be week, semester, or year long programs.
