The Levermore Global Scholars Program is an academic program of distinction designed to enhance and enrich any major in the University. Students pursue diverse courses of study and cultivate an understanding of their major in a global context.
As a global scholar, you’ll study a core global studies curriculum alongside your major and will also partially satisfy University general education requirements through specialized LGS seminars in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and arts. Seminars are typically small, discussion-based courses of 15-22 students.
All students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.3 (B+) to stay in good academic standing with the program. Seniors are honored and recognized at Commencement, and receive a special academic notation on their official transcripts.
After you complete your core LGS courses during the first two years, you will have the opportunity to further tailor your course of study by selecting from a wide range of LGS seminars in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and arts.
You will also select a foreign language to study, regardless of your major.* Recent students have demonstrated proficiency in the following languages.
*Students who have prior experience with a foreign language may take a placement exam.
