Academic Requirements

Our students call LGS “an unconventional honors program.”

The Levermore Global Scholars Program is not a typical course of study that you complete to receive a major or minor. Instead, LGS is designed to enhance and enrich any major in the University and apply it to a global context.

Academic Requirements

Like all Adelphi students, you’ll fulfill specific general education requirements, including courses in natural and formal sciences, social sciences, humanities and arts, as well as courses that address University learning goals.

In addition, as a global scholar, you’ll study a core global affairs curriculum alongside your major and partially satisfy the University requirements in your specialized LGS seminars. You will also study a foreign language, regardless of your major.

LGS seminars are discussion-based, writing-intensive classes with no more than 20 students. The curriculum explores new ideas and areas of study, while satisfying part of Adelphi’s general education requirements.

  • Freshman year: LGS-specific first-year seminar, orientation and freshman writing classes.
  • Sophomore year: specifically designed seminars in global affairs and global problem solving that constitute the foundation for exploration of issue-specific themes.
  • Junior and senior years: discussion-based, writing-intensive LGS seminars to examine contemporary political, social, economic and cultural issues from a global perspective.
  • Senior year: Senior Project Seminar to discuss multidisciplinary research and conduct your own research on and off campus.
