Levermore Global Scholars

Levermore Global Scholars Academics

Our students call LGS “an unconventional honors program.”

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.

LGS Academics

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. 

  • Currently, students in the program are studying across 37 different majors, including international studies, business, nursing, political science and biology, among others. 
  • Individualizing your experience:

LGS Plan of Study

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. 

  • Freshman year: LGS-specific first-year seminar, orientation and writing classes.
  • Sophomore year: specifically designed seminars in global affairs and global problem solving to address current international challenges. 
  • Junior and Senior years: discussion-based, writing-intensive LGS seminars to examine contemporary political, social, economic and cultural issues.
  • Senior year: Senior Project Seminar to discuss multidisciplinary research and conduct your own research on and off campus.

You will also select a foreign language to study, regardless of your major. Students who have prior experience with a foreign language may take a placement exam
