Here are the Global Teaching and Learning numbers from Academic Year 2015-16:
- In 2015-16, 224 students participated in 14 courses that contained a Global Learning Experience (GLE). These projects provide DePaul faculty and students the opportunity to engage in international interactions mediated by technology.
- College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences has launched a new master’s degree program, Refugee & Forced Migration Studies, which aims to provide students with skills to address refugee and forced displacement issues at local, national and international levels.

Our English Language Academy (ELA) supported 48 students in earning the bridge (highest level) certificate, and 76 students in demonstrating proficiency on the TOEFL exam. Additionally, our Department of Writing, Rhetoric, & Discourse supported 127 students in “x” section courses which are specifically designed to support non-native English speakers with communication and intercultural topics.
- Our Department of Modern Languages supports our students in pursuing foreign language skills through seven major programs and additional minor programs. During the 2015-16 academic year, an average of 534 students per term participated in 200 level language courses or above.
