The GW Global Bachelor's Program (GBP) is an exciting opportunity to make study abroad a central part of your undergraduate experience with multiple semesters abroad as part of your time at GW. Students selected for GBP from the eligible schools - Columbian College, Elliott School and the School of Business - take part in three experiences abroad and directly examine a pressing international challenge across these experiences. Participants will learn from faculty and peers in these different locations and be exposed to various perspectives on the global challenges that interest them. Exploring these issues will help students understand the interconnected nature of global problems and how to think creatively across traditional disciplinary and national boundaries to solve these challenges. They will also improve their ability to adapt to diverse social and cultural situations, and expand their personal, academic, and professional networks throughout this journey.
In addition to their three terms overseas, students will attend three required one-credit courses throughout the program that help them prepare for, engage in, and reflect upon their global experiences. Through these courses, students will develop intentionality that will guide their experiences abroad as well as the tools to analyze and build on their experiences upon their return.
