International Requirement

International Courses

In view of the increasing relevance of the global context to the future of our students and their need for greater understanding of the world around them, each student must complete 6 credits in courses designated as international. The international designation applies to all courses that substantially contribute to the understanding of the cultural expressions or social, political, and economic conditions of a particular region or country other than the United States. It also applies to courses that systematically offer a comparative international perspective and/or explore contemporary global issues. International courses are indicated in the course description.

 

In addition, an international on-site education experience (e.g. faculty-led course abroad or semester-long study abroad) that results in approved CCSU transfer credit will fulfill the equivalent number of credits toward the International requirement (this shall apply even if the equivalent CCSU course(s) does not bear an International designation). See the Center for International Education for more information.
