What is a Global Seminar?

UC San Diego Global Seminars are summer session global experiences led by a UC San Diego professor. Students enroll in a package of two courses for a total of eight UC San Diegoquarter units. Class sizes are between 15–28 students, so there are excellent opportunities for one-on-one interaction with some of the best faculty at UC San Diego. All courses are taught in English, except for the courses that are part of an intensive language program.

Global Seminars Mission

Our mission is to increase access to study abroad opportunities for all students in good academic and disciplinary standing regardless of socio-economic status, race, gender, sexuality, or disability. Our programs are designed to provide a supportive environment where students can pursue an academically meaningful experience with highly rated faculty members focused on socially relevant topics for credit towards their degree. See the Study Abroad diversity page for student stories and resources.
