Global Engagement > Global DePaul > Global Fall @ DePaul
Interested in studying abroad and need help figuring out where to start? Attend Study Abroad Week! This week will host a series of virtual sessions designed to teach you how to plan for study abroad. Sessions include Study Abroad 101, advising by major, connecting study abroad to careers, and scholarships. Students can also join fun interactive activities like international trivia and a scavenger hunt to win prizes.
When the COVID 19 pandemic struck and all in-person classes converted to online classes, Global Engagement hosted a series of sessions offering students the opportunity to connect and reflect on the impact of COVID-19. With more than 230 students and a dozen DePaul and international faculty from countries including India, The Netherlands, Australia, and more, these sessions cultivated intercultural, meaningful discussions on how the pandemic has affected various academic disciplines and industries, such as psychology, public health, business and more.
During the time of a global pandemic, traveling for an internship may not be for you! Therefore, DePaul is partnering with CEA Study Abroad to offer virtual internships with employers based in Buenos Aires, Dublin, Paris, Rome, San Jose, Sydney and more. With placements in 30+ professional fields, you can continue to gain international professional experience with a virtual internship.
A Global Learning Experience (GLE), also known as virtual exchange (VE), is a technology-enabled learning experience that is embedded within an existing DePaul course. Students engage in academic discussions, collaborative projects and joint lectures coordinated by the DePaul professor and an international partner institution.
To compete in a globally interconnected world, DePaul offers the new Global Fluency Certificate (GFC), a program open to undergraduate students to showcase their strategic pursuit of global learning opportunities. Students learn a foreign language, take globally-focused courses and engage in an immersive experience that culminates in a certificate awarded with their degree.
