Global Leadership Certificate Program

Prepare to be a global leader in your field. Meet international students, learn about various cultures, study abroad, develop your leadership skills, and show what you have learned.


Study Abroad Returnee Seminar

University Studies 197D, Study Abroad Experiential Learning, is a 1.0 unit P/NP seminar with up to 15 students which will cover three topics:  marketing your study abroad experience for jobs or graduate school, extending your study abroad learning here on campus, and personal reflection.  The seminar is offered in fall and winter quarters only.  You are encouraged to enroll during the quarter immediately upon your return to UCI.
