Global Citizenship Block

From healthcare and human rights to the environment, from art and popular culture to social media, participation in the world today is a global act with global consequences. By virtue of your University education, each one of you has an opportunity to understand the global footprint of your citizenship – both the rights and the responsibilities that come with living as a human citizen of the planet among its people, its creatures, and its resources. If you are someone interested in having and managing global impact, this BlockU is your General Education program.

Your BlockU experience is designed to help you be successful taking 15 credit hours per semester – which will help you finish your degree sooner! In many cases, participating in two consecutive BlockU semesters will clear your General Education requirements. You will be enrolled in a small learning community course and two additional required courses. These courses are taught by exceptional faculty who will help you integrate your learning experiences. You will have access to peer mentors, a dedicated advisor, a dedicated librarian, and a student success advocate.
