Who We Are
The Global Scholars Program draws students who have an enthusiastic desire to augment their academic study by merging it with global experiences, thus developing their ability to meet the present opportunities and future challenges of the global community.
The program provides a platform for growth beginning in the studentsâ€™ first year and prepares them to find their place in the global society.
Upon graduation, Global Scholars will have participated in four years of programming and activities that will give them exposure to different cultures and help them become leaders in our global community.
To enhance the learning experience for students with an interest in expanding their global perspective
The Global Scholars Program at Georgetown College provides a fusion of a first-class liberal arts education with global learning opportunities customized to the scholarâ€™s area of study.
- To provide students with a first-class liberal arts education
- To bring an interest for global studies into a broad-based scholarly context
- To enhance studentsâ€™ undergraduate preparation for a career of their choice with the training in international cultures, religions, customs and attitudes
- To expand studentsâ€™ understanding of past and present relationships among countries so that we may know where they are headed in the future
The program is enhanced by a relationship with the Kentucky World Trade Center and additionally strengthened by an academic partnership with the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce, a graduate program that builds global careers for its students. Our partnership with the Patterson School ensures that Global Scholars are invited to participate in Patterson programs such as lectures by distinguished international figures.
