Global Studies Distinction Pathway

Focus your classwork to explore intercultural communications and global issues. 


Develop intercultural knowledge and competence as a conscientious global citizen through TCC's Global Studies Distinction Pathway (GSDP). Apply a global focus to your studies, study away, study abroad, or study independently for your capstone project, and add a Global Studies Distinction to your academic transfer or professional technical degree. GSDP students work with their academic advisors and the GSDP Coordinator to design personalized Global Studies Distinction Pathways that complement their degrees. The GSDP can help you build a foundation for majors in Global Studies, Business, Political Science, Human Services, and Humanities.

With the Global Studies Distinction Pathway, you focus the distribution credits you need for your degree -- no extra classes needed -- and complete a capstone project.
