At the heart of Nebraska Wesleyan’s international education is its curriculum. Students develop an awareness of the diversity and interdependence of ideas and practices of world societies in a variety of curricular contexts. These areas include the following:
Global Perspectives, an integral section of Nebraska Wesleyan’s General Education curriculum, “Preparing for Global Citizenship,” includes the study of a foreign language, another culture, and the global community. In Global Perspectives courses, students have the opportunity to acquire the tools to understand other world cultures and prepare for global citizenship.
The Department of Modern Languages offers majors and minors in French, German, and Spanish and a minor in Japanese. For a comprehensive description of the various language programs, see the Modern Languages Department web page.
An interdisciplinary program, Global Studies is offered as a major or minor with an emphasis area in Asia, Latin America, industrialized nations, development studies, or foreign policy. A complete description of the program can be found on the Global Studies Program web page.
Topics of global concern are featured in occasional University Lectures and Forums and symposia. Visiting scholars from the United States or from abroad address the University community on current international issues.
