Program Description

College-approved Certificate

The Global Learning Certificate provides students an interdisciplinary understanding of contemporary global issues. Enrolled students, who join a cohort referred to as “Global Scholars,” develop important 21st century skills, including intercultural communication, global awareness, and perspective taking. They then learn to apply these skills to contemporary global contexts. The program provides students with more competitive resumés for the job market, increased scholarship opportunities, and better transfer applications for four-year colleges and universities. All this is accomplished while maintaining adherence to the Core Curriculum and allowing for students to earn a certificate while working toward an associate degree.

An Opportunity to Study Abroad

A key feature of the Global learning Certificate is the study abroad component, a unique opportunity for Massasoit students to spend time with fellow Global Scholars and faculty members outside the United States. Students will spend a week in a host country experiencing its culture, its economic system, and participating in a service-learning project.

Global Scholars will leave Massasoit with important 21st century skills which prepare them for increasingly international workplaces, universities, and communities.
