On-Campus Programs for Students

You can globalize your academics while still on campus! We partner with USC Connect and the Peace Corp to offer globally focused courses and internationally focused advising, further enhancing global experiences for those students who have and have not studied abroad.

GLD: Global Learning Pathway

Graduation with Leadership Distinction (GLD) is a formal distinction that honors the broader scope of your achievements and sets you apart in ways worthy of recognition by others (e.g., potential employers, graduate schools). The Global Learning Pathway of GLD is one of five possible pathways towards receiving GLD and was developed by us and USC Connect to help you make meaningful connections between learning within the classroom and your experiences from studying abroad.

Peace Corps Prep

The Peace Corp Prep program will prepare you for international development fieldwork and potential Peace Corps service. Through interrelated coursework, hands-on experience, and professional development, you’ll build competencies in training and experience in a work sector, foreign language skills, intercultural competence, and professional leadership development that will assist you whether or not you choose to apply for Peace Corp Volunteer service.

Returnees

Welcome home! Congratulations on completing a successful term abroad. We in the Study Abroad Office hope that your experience abroad was full of discovery, adventure, and learning. We’re glad to have you back at USC, where you can continue to pursue your international education with any number of our interactive ways to stay involved.
